10/23/2018: "Local Bar Had Rated Brandli's Candidacy"
To the Editor
A survey distributed by the SYC Bar to its members rated Mr. Brandli and three others who sought the governor’s appointment to the Superior Court bench. Seventeen of twenty three respondents (74%) said Mr. Brandli was either “deficient” or “poor” in judicial temperament. Half also felt he was “deficient” or “poor” in fairness. Overall, 60% of respondents rated his candidacy as either “poor” or “deficient.” These are disturbing results which I hope voters will consider in the current District Court race between Mr. Brandli and Ms. Jewett.
Ms. Jewett is very smart, caring and passionate about public service. Her experience as Deputy Prosecutor has been in District Court so she’s well equipped to meet the job requirements. Jewett will be 100% committed, unlike Mr. Brandli who will maintain his private practice. While young, she’s only two years junior to John Linde when he was elected to this same position. Please vote for her!
