On Feb. 20, Wisconsin voters will choose the two candidates who will be on the ballot in April for our Wisconsin Supreme Court.
This is an extremely important election.
Our Supreme Court makes decisions that have a major impact on the lives of every citizen in Wisconsin.
The Supreme Court makes the final decision on whether actions taken by our legislators and our governor are legal.
Supreme Court justices are not like circuit court judges. Justices do not conduct trials. Witnesses do not give testimony before the Supreme Court. Instead, Supreme Court justices rule on the constitutionality of laws.
Tim Burns has chaired the American Bar Association Committee on Fair and Impartial Courts and serves on the national board of the American Constitution Society, an organization that focuses on constitutional issues. He has the right experience, qualifications, demeanor and values to be Wisconsin’s next Supreme Court justice.
Tim has been married to Pam for over 20 years, and they have three children. He will help bring much-needed balance to our Supreme Court.
I urge you to vote for Tim Burns on Feb. 20.
PATRICK K. McDONALD
