Cedarburg– After receiving almost 34% of the vote in February’s four-way Ozaukee County Circuit Court primary, Mid-Moraine Municipal Court Judge Steve Cain has received the endorsement of almost the entire legislative delegation representing the County. State Senators Alberta Darling and Duey Stroebel and State Representatives Dan Knodl and Rob Brooks have endorsed Steve in April’s election. The four legislators and Steve offered the following statements:
“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,” commented Senator Darling. “Those qualifications and years of service to the Ozaukee County community and legal profession are unmatched.”
“There are far too many judges in the state who do not appreciate the principle of separation of powers,” noted Senator Stroebel. “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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I am thrilled to have the support of four of Ozaukee County’s most respected leaders,” said Steve Cain. “Collectively, they have served the County honorably for decades. I am committed to serving as a humble servant of the law – one that respects their role as policy makers. At the same time, I will not waiver in my responsibility to ensure that every legislative act comports with constitutional principles.”
