Judging the Judicial Judgement of Montana Judges
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.
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.
