Statement by Madeline McComish, Chair of the MCFL State PAC
The MCFL State PAC is pleased to announce its endorsement of Richard Baker for election to the Governor’s Council, which approves or rejects all judges nominated by the Governor.
Rich Baker believes that the rule of law is essential to a free, just and safe society, and he agrees with the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that for this to happen we must have judges who base their decisions on the law as written and on the relevant facts, not on personal feelings about what kind of law they would prefer. Rich insists that it is the job of democratically elected senators and representatives, not judges, to make laws. But his opponent wants to see more activist liberal judges who will legislate from the bench.
To have in our state more judges who honor the authentic meaning of the rule of law, we urge our fellow citizens in District 5 — Merrimack Valley and the North Shore — to vote for Rich Baker for Governor’s Council on November 8.
