“The most important issue in any judicial election is philosophy. Voters understand that the proper role of judges is to apply the law as written, and not as they wish it to be. I support Steve Cain for Ozaukee Circuit Court because I am confident he shares my judicial philosophy and I appreciate his commitment to be a ‘servant of the law.'”

“Steve’s experience as a municipal court judge and as a private practice attorney make him uniquely qualified to serve the people of Ozaukee County. Those qualifications and years of service to the Ozaukee County community and legal profession are unmatched.”

State Senator Alberta Darling

“Steve Cain is an extremely fine lawyer, well versed in the real work we do in our courthouse. He understands what’s important to the citizens of Ozaukee County, and has the knowledge, experience and acumen to be an outstanding circuit court judge. I strongly endorse Steve.”

Ozaukee District Attorney 
Adam Gerol

“After 34 years in law enforcement I know what’s needed in a Circuit Court Judge. Steve Cain is the right person for the job. I’ve known Steve as a prosecutor and a Judge. From years of personal experience in Municipal Court, I know he’ll do his part to ensure public safety and will be fair and respectful to all who appear before him. I endorse him wholeheartedly.”

Scott Nicholson, Thiensville Police Chief, Retired

“There are far too many judges in the state who do not appreciate the principle of separation of powers. I am confident Steve will respect the role of the legislature as it makes policy determinations while vigorously applying the constitutional oversight that is the prerogative of the judiciary. Steve understands the proper role of a judge – to declare what the law is, not what he wishes it to be.”

State Senator Duey Stroebel

“As a former Ozaukee County Board Chairman, I appreciate the integral role circuit court judges play in addressing the opiate crisis that is afflicting far too many families,” stated Rep. Brooks. “As a municipal court judge for over ten years, Steve is in a position to immediately contribute to ending this scourge.”

State Rep. Rob Brooks

“Some candidates claim to have the right judicial philosophy and relevant experience, while others prove it by their actions,” observed Rep. Knodl. “Steve fits the latter category – he is committed to a conservative judicial philosophy and has proven over almost twenty years in private practice he possesses the experience Ozaukee County voters demand in their judges.”
