Judicial elections

The filing of a campaign finance complaint over a judicial retreat is just one more reason why we need to end judicial elections in this state. We vote for the legislature. We vote for the governor. We don't need to vote for all three branches of government. The judiciary should be non-partisan, but a far-right Republican activist decided that's a bad idea, so here we are.

Or if you don't want to get rid of elections entirely, how about one election a few years after the judge is chosen by a non-partisan panel of experts? That, combined with recall, is good enough.
