In an election for an open seat, Marie Davidson goes up against Tony Marin.
Anyone who has worked in the REGJB for the last 20 years knows Tony Marin. He is an experienced and respected defense attorney and we are confident that if elected he will hit the ground running.
We were somewhat surprised to read that Ms. Davidson told the Herald words to the effect that her candidacy was something of a lark. This is an important position. A Circuit Judge can and does decided life and death. We don’t know much about Ms. Davidson but we think that if she was not really going to try, why qualify for the seat and possibly scare away a more qualified candidate? You want to play around? Go become a traffic magistrate.
In any event, Tony Marin is the solid pick for this seat. He is qualified and experienced and really wants to be a Judge.
