Judging the Judicial Judgement of Montana Judges

by lizard

Build it and they will come is a phrase commonly used by the bandwagon against revamping homeless services. I’d like to transpose that logic to Montana’s various court systems.

How are Montanans going to address the influx of statutory rapists and discontented bridal murderers in the aftermath of barely any jail time for either charges in those two cases (yet)?

I’m a big fan of old, white men judges retiring. I’m also a fan of judges who face election, like Kathleen Jenks.

Why reelect Judge Jenks? Here’s some messaging on that:

When I took the bench I told people that my goal was to leave Municipal Court in better shape than it was when I started. We all want to improve what is around us and make a lasting impact on our community, our profession, and our world. During my time on the bench, I have greatly improved Municipal Court, and by doing so, I have improved the community of Missoula. However, there is still much progress to be made. Missoula Municipal Court has come a long way, but I believe I can take it further.

So it is with pleasure and anticipation that I announce my candidacy for Missoula Municipal Court. I have been overwhelmed by the support I have already received and I thank you for your support in November.
