The importance of who sits on the State Supreme Court cannot be overstated. The judicial philosophy of any given justice determines whether that individual sees their role on the court as interpreting the law or making new law.
In considering its endorsement decision in the race between the Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Shirley Abrahamson and Jefferson County Circuit Judge Randy Koschnick, our political action committee (the Wisconsin Right to Life PAC) viewed judicial philosophy as a key factor.
The WRTL/PAC endorsement went to Judge Koschnick – hands down – because of his firm belief that the proper role of justices is to interpret the law and not make up new law. Judge Koschnick is also very well qualified to serve on our state’s highest court with over 25 years of legal experience. He is currently serving as Presiding Judge of the Jefferson County Circuit Court and Deputy Chief Judge of Wisconsin’s Third Judicial District. Judge Koschnick received the Wisconsin Law Journal’s 2008 Leaders in the Law Award.
Hope you’ll remember this and get out to vote in the spring elections. The primary is February 17 and the general election is April 7.
