Letter: Supporting Judge Justin Hansen

To the Editor:

I am writing to support Judge Hansen in his candidacy for circuit judge. 

I have known Justin Hansen for several years. I am supporting him now for the same reason I agreed to help him, when he approached me about his campaign committee: He is the best person for the job. 

Over the past year or so, Judge Hansen has built his campaign from the ground up. He did not have a political background or a bank of political capital to reply upon.

He has no prior experience as a politician. This is not a political win for him. Rather, Justin wants to stay on the bench because it is what he is good at — his experience, integrity and community service all lend themselves to him being a great judge for our community. 

We built his campaign around these same qualities. Judges are not allowed to campaign on issues, and they cannot prejudge cases; so we have focused on the merits of his appointment, the quality of his work, his integrity, and his community service.

These are some of the reasons why I have helped and supported him. They are the reasons our community will benefit if he stays on the bench. I hope they are also the reasons that you will vote for him in November.
