by – the Fox Guarding the Hen House
Everyone paying attention to Colorado’s Judiciary knows that there is a very public effort this year – to remove Judges from the Bench. It’s called ‘Clear the Bench Colorado’ – which the ECT does support.
It is (among other things) an effort to remove Activist Judges who legislate from the Bench – in order to promote social change that ‘they think’ is good.
Now enter – Colorado’s Office of Judicial Performance Evaluation…the Fox standing in front of our Courthouse…er…hen-house. Turns out this pro status quo group…
“Over the decades-long history of the “performance review” commissions, they have NOT ONCE recommended a “do not retain” vote for a Colorado Supreme Court justice (historically, that’s a 100% endorsement of the incumbent); the commissions have NOT ONCE recommended a “do not retain” vote for any Colorado Court of Appeals judge (again, a 100% endorsement); and the commissions have only very rarely (16 times, counting this year) recommended a “do not retain” vote for ANY judge at ANY level (an astounding 99% endorsement rate). According to these “evaluations” there is no need to remove ANY of the incumbent judges or justices appearing on the ballot this year.” For more information and a look at the ECT’s source for this quote – (Click Here)
Does this seem right to you? Fair and Balanced? Who is this Pro-Judge group and why do they pretend to represent your interests? (Click Here) – proves this group – wants you to vote to retain every single Judge up for re-election in Eagle County this November 2nd.
Don’t be fooled. Be informed. It’s time to Clear the Bench in Eagle County and else where – and the County could certainly use a new Sheriff too – vote for James Van Beek – Eagle County Sheriff – Nov. 2nd
