What do you want in a candidate for the Wisconsin State Supreme Court? Surely, you want someone who upholds and obeys the law, someone who is both honest and transparent.

Unfortunately, Michael Screnock, one of three candidates for the office, fails on all counts. He was arrested and ticketed for trespassing and obstructing officers on two occasions. Moreover, he failed to disclose his arrests on a judicial application.

On the other hand, do you want a candidate who champions your rights against huge corporate interests? If so, Tim Burns is your man. He worked successfully across the country and overseas to hold massive insurance companies accountable for financial fraud. His aim is to “prevent concentrated wealth from taking over democratic institutions”.

At a time of when the enormous gap between the rich and poor in this country is as bad as it was during the era of the robber barons just before the Great Depression, it’s time for us to elect this champion of the people.

I plan to vote for Tim Burns for Supreme Court justice on Feb. 20, and I hope you will, too.
