“As attorneys in our local bar we are fortunate to practice in one of the best areas in the entire state.. For many individuals, unless they have a legal issue they may never come across any of the candidates in their capacity as attorneys or judges in open court or in a professional setting.  This bar poll is a reflection of our bar’s intent to give the general public an idea of what we think of the candidates in their professional capacity and ability to undertake the responsibilities for the positions they seek.  ” said Thomas Parkerson  RCCBA President.

A survey ballot was conducted online available only to RCCBA members. The lawyers were asked to comment as to each of the candidates in one of four  ways:  “Highly Recommend,” "Recommend," “Do Not Recommend,” or “No Opinion.”  They were also asked to rate the each candidates’ experience and judicial demeanor on a scale from one to ten. One hundred and ten (110) responses were received by the deadline of July 23, 2014.  All results are reported as raw ballot results with no attempt to extrapolate the results.  RCCBA maintains complete neutrality.
