City of Batavia Democratic Committee Chair Statement on City Judge Campaign
Written by WBTA STAFF on June 17, 2019
Statements from Judicial Campaign Regarding Political Issues are Inappropriate
Unlike that of other elected officials, the campaigns and elections of judges are required to be non-political. Judges can not and do not run on issues, but instead run on their resumes and records.
Recent statements by the Rogers campaign and his supporters regarding Mr. Rogers stance on gun laws are inappropriate at best and unethical at worst.
The judicial system only works when our judges are unbiased and held to the highest ethical standards and that is exactly what The City of Batavia deserves in it’s judges.
Chair, City of Batavia Democratic Committee
