Marla Stephens endorses JoAnne Kloppenburg

The past few days have shown us how important constitutional checks and balances can be in our state government. During my campaign for Supreme Court, I expressed my concern over the potential for over-reaching that occurs when a single party controls both the legislative and the executive branches. We must have a truly nonpartisan and independent Supreme Court to check and balance the other two branches. Unfortunately, I do not believe that Justice Prosser can be an independent jurist, based on prior statements and decisions. I am therefore endorsing JoAnne Kloppenburg in the upcoming General Election to replace Justice Prosser and to restore faith in the independence, impartiality and integrity of the court.
