As a candidate for Idaho Supreme Court Justice, I believe that I have the broadest experience and the most extensive skill set. I hope the citizens of Idaho will look to qualifications and not simply endorsements when voting on May 17th.
I have not built my campaign on a list of endorsements from the political establishment. Instead, I have been pounding the pavement and traveling across the state, meeting with folks from all walks of life. I’ve spoken to lawyers, civic groups, schools, and everyday community members — Democrats, Republicans and Independents. I have attended candidate forums where I have had the chance to let people know who I am and what kind of Justice I would be — a Justice who understands the experiences of real Idaho citizens dealing with the law.
I have visited Idaho cities and towns around the state from Porthill to Idaho Falls, from Payette to St. Anthony, and most places in between. After one forum, a young woman talked to me about how she appreciated that I was talking to everyone — not just the ‘elites’.
That’s who I am and that’s what the Court should be — accessible, fair and open. The Idaho Courts exist to serve all the citizens of Idaho. Every Idahoan should have a voice. I best represent those voices. In a recent questionnaire by the Idaho State Bar, I received the highest ranking from my fellow lawyers for understanding the law and commitment to the rule of law.
As an attorney for nearly 20 years, my view is from the “trench not the bench.” I have spent my career representing Idahoans in courtrooms across the state, including in the Idaho Supreme Court. I have dealt with issues ranging from water law to victim’s rights to beef measles. I understand the ‘big picture’ issues facing Idaho and the challenges that small counties face. I offer a fresh, experienced perspective that will add to the success of the Idaho Supreme Court. I ask for your vote on May 17th.
Robyn Brody, of Rupert, is a candidate for the Idaho Supreme Court.
