Madison, WI – More than 170 judges from around Wisconsin have announced their support for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley’s re-election, the Bradley campaign announced today.

These judges join the growing list of bi-partisan leaders and law enforcement officials around the state who have endorsed Justice Bradley’s re-election.

“Justice Bradley has served with distinction on the Wisconsin Supreme Court for nearly two decades.  She has a proven record of being fair, independent, and willing to make the tough decisions,” said Rock County Circuit Court Judge (ret.) James E. Welker.  “Her integrity is unmatched, as is her dedication to keeping special interests and partisan politics out of our courtrooms.”

Outagamie Circuit Court Judge Michael Gage continued: “Justice Bradley is a leader in the law and has been since the start of her career. Why? Because she has always had a commitment to the highest principles of the law – fairness, impartiality and equality – and the integrity and intellect to put those principles into action.”

“Justice Bradley is a role model for attorneys and judges,” concluded Milwaukee Circuit Court Judge Mary Triggiano. “Her intellect is first-rate. Her writing is clear and concise. She is fair and she is respectful of those appearing before her. She holds herself to the highest standards. And she has given back a great deal to the practice of law and our courts through her volunteer work promoting the rule of law both here and abroad.

“I’m honored to have such overwhelming support from judges across Wisconsin,” Justice Bradley said. “We share a commitment to maintaining a fair, independent, and non-partisan judiciary. Together, we will ensure that our courts remain a place where everyone in Wisconsin always gets a fair shake.

Over the past two weeks the Bradley Campaign has announced the endorsement of over 100 Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, and bi-partisan support from leaders like former First Lady Sue Ann Thompson, Congressman Ron Kind, Senator Dale Schultz, and Senator Tim Cullen.

For the last two decades Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has served the people of Wisconsin on the Supreme Court. She was first elected in 1995, becoming only the third woman in the state’s history to win election to Wisconsin’s highest court. Prior to serving on the Supreme Court Justice Bradley was a Circuit Court Judge for ten years in Marathon County.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices are elected in the non-partisan April elections for 10-year terms. Election Day is April 7, 2015.
