LETTER: Kelly’s ideology makes him the right choice for state’s high court

To Ozaukee Press:

The huge task, privilege and responsibility before Wisconsin citizens is the Wisconsin Supreme Court elections on Feb. 18 and April 7. Votes will decide not only the trajectory of our state, but the influence of state governance at various levels of our society and cultural streams.  

The judicial and cultural ideologies of the three candidates need to be examined if we intend to guard our liberties.

Marquette Law School professor Ed Fallone’s ideology, according an interview last year, is that of retired Shirley Abrahamson. His motive for running appears to be anger and hostility toward Justice Daniel Kelly for being appointed by Gov. Walker to fill Abrahamson’s vacancy.  Is his candidacy merely a personal, bitter invective against Justice Kelly?  

Jill Karofsky, a circuit court judge in Dane County, attests on her website that, “No one knows better than me how important it is to have a legal system that works….”  Does Karofsky suggest that the Wisconsin legal system is in a state of confusion and unsound with a distrustful spirit?

 Kelly writes on his website that the “law is…received from the ultimate lawgivers — the people of the State of Wisconsin and the United States. It is my desire to serve the people of this state by applying, protecting and preserving the rule of law.”

 Voting for Justice Daniel Kelly will ensure the security and preservation of individual liberty, due process and property rights, true Constitutional principles under the rule of law, for all Wisconsin citizens.
