MADISON—Recognizing that most voters will not have the opportunity to see or hear from the two state Supreme Court candidates, the nonpartisan Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance (WISTAX) is offering “In Their Own Words: Wisconsin Supreme Court Candidates,” a series of unedited responses to questions sent to the candidates.
WISTAX asked Justice Rebecca Bradley and Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg to: provide information on their educational and professional backgrounds; submit letters to the voters explaining why they should be elected; and identify one U.S. Supreme Court Justice they most respect and explain why. Candidate responses are available online at www.wistax.org.
“Supreme Court justices serve 10-year terms,” noted WISTAX President Todd A. Berry, “so I urge citizens to read up on the two candidates and vote on April 5.”
