'Experienced judge to Supreme Court'

Print Article

I am voting for Judge Brian Hagedorn for Wisconsin's State Supreme Court on April 2.

I'm voting for Judge Hagedorn because he is an experienced judge who is currently serving as a Wisconsin Appellate Court judge. People voted overwhelmingly for Judge Hagedorn to serve on the appellate and now it's time to vote for him to be a Supreme Court justice.

Judge Hagedorn firmly believes it is the state legislature's legal responsibility to make laws, not judges. He clearly understands that a judge's job is to apply the law as it is written. It is not a judge's job to ask for lawsuits to be brought before them.

In matters of good or bad laws, Judge Hagedorn understands his role as a judge is not to rewrite a law but rather to ensure it doesn't violate the state Constitution. When it does, say so without rewriting the law in an opinion.

I believe Judge Hagedorn is the right judge to become our next state Supreme Court justice. Please vote for Judge Hagedorn on April 2.
