Letter to the Editor: Response to Supreme Court Election Day Decision

Dear Wisconsin voters,

Shame on Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices Patience Roggensack, Annette Ziegler, Rebecca Bradley and Brian Hagedorn! They deserve to be recalled for arrogantly acting against local, state and national recommendations – as well as common sense. 

On April 7, Wisconsinites had to choose between being disenfranchised, or gambling with their lives by gathering in large groups at fewer polling places rather than abiding by universal recommendations to stay home. The court’s decision flies in the face of scientifically based guidance promoted by state and national government agencies in response to this public-health emergency. This is the week when we were cautioned against even going to the grocery. 

These justices have been elected to serve terms through 2023, 2027, 2026 and 2027, respectively. I, for one, can’t wait that long for a court that exercises humane judgment. Their actions are unforgivable. Onward!
