Hon. Burkemper has many years of experience, plus training and education beyond his opponent. Additional study of the law at Oxford, England....served on the Mo. Judicial review, the board that hears and rules on disciplining members of the Bar, served as guest appellate judge by request of the state, most importantly, refused to follow $50 Dildine's folly.

Kunza-Mennemeyer has tried, appeared, ruled on what exactly?

Regardless of party, a presiding judge should be educated and experienced in the law.
We all have seen what happens when you put an inexperienced attorney in the position of PA. An inexperienced attorney as judge would be a disaster.

This is not about party, it's about the law.
For Bass

I am voting for Bass because he will be sympathetic to drug users!

Don't care. It's funny how Kunza is still using her Ex's last name though. :)

Anyone see her ad in the journal? She is appearing to be a stronger candidate each week. She made a good point. If she wins, he'll still be a judge. Buit if he wins and his seat is vacated, the govenor will APPOINT someone to fill burkemper's seat. What are your thoughts on an appointed judge? Who?
wow

Since every Supreme Court Judge is appointed, I am sure Lincoln County can survive 2 years with one.

I also thought she had a good ad. Go Chris, it's time for a change. I think she has a good chance of winning. Who do I think the govenor would appoint if Burkemper should win? Flynn.

Flynn? No way, he's had his chance. Who else is a democrat attorney?

Please state the fact based reason for changing to an individual that has had no experience on the bench in a leadership role.

I think she does have experience. Maybe not as a judge, but neither did Burkemper, Dildine, Beck, etc when they started out. I think she has an impressive track record based on what I've read. I think she'll do well.

Wow. If her advertisement is any example of how she would run the court as Circuit Judge, then a resounding NO.
The Circuit Judge sets rules and regulations, manages the budget and determines which judges will hear cases.
She states that she will improve costs. How exactly? Step up and say how.

We all know what happened when you put an inexperienced attorney as PA. You want the same circus now behind the bench?

No thank you.

How do you know Judge Burkemper doesn't follow the same protocol as Judge Dildine? Please back up with some facts and examples on how the two are different.

....when a potential juror expressed that he wanted to take the Dildine Option of paying $50 instead of fulfilling their duty of serving on a jury. Judge Burkemper's response was "Absolutely not."
