Letter to the Editor: Vote Yes For Iowa Judges

Staff Writer
Perry Chief

As a long-time practicing attorney here in Iowa, I know on a professional basis the Iowa judges up for retention vote in our November 2016 election. They are men and women of the highest integrity. As an independent branch of government, they are and should be insulated from politics and special political interests. They are the firewall for the protection of our individual constitutional and civil rights. They decide cases on a fair and impartial basis without fear or favor. Iowa has one of the best judiciaries in America. Supreme Court Justices Cady, Hecht and Appel are judges of the highest integrity and competence. I urge you to vote Yes on this year's election ballot to retain all of these excellent judges.

Thanks,

Daniel Spellman
