INTER-COUNTY LEADER - NEWS SECTION - A - OCTOBER 24, 2018 VOLUME 90 • NO. 11
What would you do about judicial reform? Would you decriminalize marijuana and regulate hemp?
Kim Butler, Democratic candidate
Our Constitution set up a balance between the judiciary, the legislative and the executive branches of government. The legislature makes laws and the courts apply, or uphold those laws. The judiciary should be fair and impartial, the court should rise above the political fray, and issue rulings based solely on the law, in keeping with their code of ethics. Some states have seen battles between the courts and the legislature. Our April 3 Supreme Court election, while technically nonpartisan, was highly politicized.
Candidate forums and debates are great tools for voters to compare candidates, and see who’s knowledge, experience, and values line up with their own. I am glad I got a chance to appear on “The West Side” with Rich Kremer.
