George Soule to speak on judicial appointments and elections at Citizens League event

April 2017.  George Soule will speak on May 16 at an event sponsored by Minnesota’s Citizens League on the state’s system for appointing and electing judges.  George will speak on a panel with former Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz and former MSBA President Tom Tinkham.  The speakers will “answer such questions as, who are our existing judges, and what qualifications do they need to meet to be selected for the ballot? What are the election rules surrounding judicial races in Minnesota, and are they fair? Could Minnesota end up with judicial races with television and radio ads paid by outside groups? Finally, what impact do judges have on our day-to-day lives?”  For more information, or to sign up to attend the event, check here.
