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.
