Judicial campaign — thank you

Thank you Lincoln County voters and my many supporters. It's been another invigorating campaign, and before its completion, I want each of you to know that I deeply appreciate your questions, involvement and enthusiastic support despite this difficult time for all of us.

I ask for your vote one last time. Courtrooms are where people come to access equal justice. Equal justice means that you should expect that your case will be decided on the facts as they develop on a fixed record. It means that your family name, prior history and who you know (or don't know) are irrelevant to a just outcome. If you find yourself in court, and you receive an unexpected outcome that can't be easily explained in common language, something has gone wrong. 

If elected, I promise on my oath that I will apply the law neutrally, I will explain my decisions in simple language and I will decide all matters within three months of submission exactly as ORS 1.050 requires.

With gratitude,

Russ Baldwin

Candidate, Circuit Court Position 1
