Judge Peter Diltz and D. Todd Ehlers have endorsed Rebecca Dallet for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Voters will select a replacement for retiring Justice Michael Gabelman April 3rd.
In a joint statement, Diltz and Ehlers cite Dallet’s ten years as a criminal prosecutor and ten years as a circuit judge as a reason for endorsing her. “She is committed to a fair, impartial and non-partisan third branch of government,” their statement of endorsement said.
The complete statement is posted with this story below.
On April 3rd Wisconsin voters will elect a new Supreme Court Justice who will begin a ten year term on that Court in August. We write to express our support for Judge Rebecca Dallet for this important position.
We believe Judge Dallet’s experience makes her extremely qualified to serve on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. That experience includes over ten years as a criminal prosecutor and the past almost ten years as a circuit court judge. During those tenures, she has proven her commitments to upholding the law, to making our communities safer and to protecting the rights of victims.
Judge Dallet also shares our beliefs regarding the independence of the judiciary and all the courts of this state. She is committed to a fair, impartial, and non-partisan third branch and has vowed to bring those attributes to the highest court in Wisconsin.
We urge all voters here in Door County to exercise their right to vote on April 3rd.
