Letter to the editor: Vote for Screnock for Wisconsin Supreme Court

By DOUG ROGALLA | Kendall

Sauk County Circuit Court Judge Michael Screnock is running for state Supreme Court to replace outgoing Justice Michael Gableman. Vote on Tuesday, April 3.

Judge Screnock will respect the Constitution, will review a case and will apply the law. He is not an activist judge. He will not legislate from the bench. Judge Screnock has said he is dedicated to upholding the separation of powers and the rule of law.

In the words of Judge Screnock, “Having an independent judiciary comprised of justices with an unwavering commitment to upholding the rule of law, to recognizing and respecting the separation of powers, and to interpreting the constitution as it was intended is critical to preserving and maintaining democracy.”

He has an amazing resume of public service. He ran the City of Reedsburg’s community development program, assisting low-income and first-time homeowners in making necessary home repairs.

As an attorney, Screnock worked on many complex cases, including defending Act 10. He worked on numerous cases before the Wisconsin Court of Appeals and Wisconsin Supreme Court. Screnock also co-authored annual legal updates on Administrative Law topics for a Wisconsin State Bar publication.

Since 2015, Screnock has served on the Sauk County Circuit Court, seeing thousands of cases to their end. Screnock handles every type of case, including juvenile, probate, small claims, harassment injunctions, divorce and family matters, civil disputes, civil commitments, and every manner of criminal case from disorderly conduct to first-degree intentional homicide. He also has presided over the Sauk County Adult Drug Court since its inception in January 2016.

Judge Screnock has received the endorsement of five active or retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices, 41 judges, and 51 of 72 county sheriffs. Judge Screnock’s life experience as a judge, local government official and attorney have uniquely prepared him to be Wisconsin’s next Supreme Court Justice.

    Letter to the editor: How can Norwalk develop a progressive, forward-thinking attitude?

    In response to the article “Arguing in Norwalk …” in the Nov. 21 issue, I would like to voice a few concerns and add a few comments to the mix. I have stopped attending Norwalk’s monthly meetings for just that purpose. The arguing, swearing and lack of professionalism is counterproductive to our failing village.
