To the editor:

Of course, elections have consequences. On Tuesday, April 6, you will have a chance to vote in an under-the-radar election for a Wisconsin Appeals Court District II judge. We are part of District II. The two candidates running for the seat include Jeff Davis, the incumbent Appeals Court Judge, and Shelley Grogan, a municipal court judge. When you vote, carefully review their qualifications and levels of experience.

Jeff Davis is a sitting, experienced appeals court judge. Before joining the bench, he was an attorney with Quarles & Brady, one of the state’s most respected law firms. He has more than 30 years experience trying cases before judges and juries. Grogan has no such experience. Prior to being appointed to the municipal court, she served as a law clerk. As a municipal judge, Grogan handles mostly misdemeanor and traffic cases.

Davis also offers something rare: support from colleagues and judges on both sides of the political spectrum. Before voting on April 6, do your research. Google both candidates. Check their levels of experience and their endorsements. The differences are stark; Jeff Davis is the only qualified candidate. He deserves your vote.

All you need to know is that Radical, Liberal, Democrat Governor Tony Ever's appointed candidate Jeff Davis, the incumbent Appeals Court Judge.-----------

Vote for Judge Shelley Grogan on April 6, for a Wisconsin Appeals Court District II judge. She has more than 25 years of experience in Wisconsin courts. In addition to her work with Justice Rebecca Bradley, she is the current sitting judge in the City of Muskego, where she has lived for over 25 years. It’s where she and her late husband raised their three wonderful children. She is also an Adjunct Professor of Law at Marquette University Law School.

Judge Shelley Grogan released the following statement:

“I’m running to serve you as Judge on the Court of Appeals because the people of Wisconsin’s second district deserve a Judge who will always stand up for the rule of law and protect our Constitutional freedoms. I’m proud to have the endorsement of Supreme Court Justices Rebecca Bradley and Dan Kelly.

The Constitution is the law and I will not set it aside or legislate from the bench. I will apply the law written by your legislators and respect the role of the judicial branch to act independently and impartially in every case. I humbly ask for your vote on April 6.”

Nice talking points Sallie (cut and paste again). You neglect to mention that Grogan also applied for the same position that Judge Davis was appointed to. Also your idol Scott Walker passed over Grogan when she applied to him for a position. BTW, Judge Davis is endorsed by Chief Justice Patience Roggensack, Justice Annette Ziegler and former Justices David Prosser and Jon P. Wilcox plus numerous other judges. Check out Judge Davis' endorsements here:

Once again readers are given more cut and paste talking points that are really tiresome....FB Ripon Uncensored is the best place for them....

Sallie, thanks for sending the following to my email.... Just to let you know, I am not attempting to censor you or your viewpoints. I am sorely disappointed with the name calling, especially the name you gave to Vice President Harris. Name calling is most often done when one lacks original thought and ideas. I can see why cut and paste is so important to you. Have a good week!

"You wouldn't mind at all if my comments agreed with you. So sad-- your weak attempt at censoring me. I don't want to censor you. Get your viewpoints out there for all to read. Too many Leftists hide their true beliefs because they cannot run and win posting their radical ideas. Even Old Joe and the Ho had to pretend to run as moderates. They couldn't win by lying, they had to steal the election!"

I can't even see Ripon Uncensored because Sallie blocked me a LONG time ago when RCP used Facebook comments. I guess she couldn't stand the heat in the kitchen.

P. S. And anyone using that moniker for our Vice President, especially a woman using it, is shameful!

Sallie, off topic again. Just wondering, are you reasonable? Sidney Powell says that no reasonable person would never believe her claims about 2020 election fraud. That means no Kraken. Well, are you?
