The Election – It’s More than the President

Well, the election is six (6) days away.  Many people have many positions about the Presidential election.  We have heard about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton ad nauseam.  Trump is an egotistical sexual predator who lies.  Clinton is a lying cheat – on and on and on.

Well, whatever you think about those two candidates, there is much more at stake than simply the President.  The sample ballot above illustrates that point.  You have one contested Senate and Congressional race, and there are seven (7) contested judicial races.  Judges make a huge difference in people’s lives.  They hear cases on every day matters:  criminal matters and civil matters.  Judges decide various felony and misdemeanor cases.  They decide real estate matters, car accidents, workers compensation, corporate disputes, wrongful death, etc.  You may only have one case in your lifetime, but that one Judge can make all the difference.

We don’t want Judges who are for one particular special interest group or another.  We want fair judges.  Those who know the law.  Those who have experience.  If you click here, you can see what the Birmingham Bar Association members think about the candidates.  Do your research and get out and vote.  This election is about so much more than simply the President.
