JUDGES: Bar ratings helpful at election time

Thank you for printing the bar association judicial ratings accompanied with lawyer comments and judges’ responses. For many years, I have chosen not to vote for our judges because of lack of knowledge about their performance. All I had to go by were their statements in the voters pamphlets.

I recognize the information provided only will assist with voting on whether to re-elect incumbents. However, this is more information than I have had in the past.

I am saving the section you published for reference when marking future ballots. Thank you again for publishing this helpful article.
