ELECT ~ Russell Baldwin for Judge!
I am writing in support of Russ Baldwin’s candidacy for Circuit Court judge, because I believe him to be an ethical, well-qualified person who is concerned about justice for the citizens of Lincoln County. As a civil litigator with over 30 years of experience, Russ would bring a wealth of experience to the bench. Our current judges are all former prosecutors, and while I have nothing against prosecutors (having been one myself for over 30 years), I recognize the importance of having judges on the bench with experience in both civil and criminal law. Those areas of practice are very different from one another, and involve the application of different bodies of law, rules and procedures. Russ’s extensive experience in civil law will bring much-needed balance to the Court which, I believe, will benefit both the judicial system and the citizens of Lincoln County.
