Judicial elections are difficult for the outsider. We rarely know much about either candidate, and election laws don’t allow them to say much.
I have been fortunate in watching both Judge Alex Ekstrom and his opponent together in the same courtroom. Judge Ekstrom was knowledgeable, competent, fair and considerate to all parties. His opponent was excited, but seemed not to grasp the issues before the court.
The choice is very clear to me — Alex Ekstrom without a doubt.
