Judges are required to promote confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary. They are to apply the law to the facts of the case before them and perform their duties fairly. Our communities need Judges who work diligently and selflessly to uphold these values because what Judges do on a daily basis has a direct and substantial impact on all of us. We need Judges that respect the limits of their authority, for that authority comes from you, the people of this great State.
