Baldwin for Supreme Court

We're voting for Judge Richard Baldwin for Oregon Supreme Court. Not because his brother is such a star on the TV show "30 Rock," but because he's an experienced trial judge. The main job of the state's highest court -- probably 95% of what it does -- is figure out whether a trial court made a mistake. It's bad when nobody on the court has walked in the trial judge's shoes. Baldwin's opponent, Nena Cook, has spun her résumé to look like she's got substantial judicial experience, but in reality it's less than that.

We voted for Baldwin in the primary and were pleased to see him make it to the runoff. We're blackening the circle for him again.

Oregon Legal Research recently published this on How to Vote for an Oregon Judge:

The last time I served on a jury, Judge Baldwin was the presiding judge.

Thanks, Jack. This is an area where I especially value your opinion and experience. I hate the idea of electing judges almost as much as the idea of appointing them, and it is probably a good thing that many voters skip that part of the ballot and leave it to people who know what they are doing.

I'm not sure that I would want anyone remotely associated with Alec Baldwin anywhere near a courtroom (other than as a defendant)

What if he decides that he would rather play a video game than listen to arguments?

The other justices would not likely allow a video game system in the Supreme Court. Well, maybe a Wii. Those are fun for everybody.

He is not related to Alec Baldwin. That was a joke!

The word is this guy is a real pro. At least I can feel sure about one person I'll be voting for this year.
