2018 Judicial Candidates Poll Results

Candidates Listed on the Ballot for November 6, 2018

 

Joan H. Rife, President of the Toledo Bar Association, announced the results of the poll taken of Association members regarding candidates running in the upcoming election for judges in local courts. The poll was taken September 9 – 19, 2018.

Biographies of each judicial candidate and a survey were emailed to members of the Toledo Bar Association. The questionnaire asked members to indicate whether they felt judicial candidates are “highly recommended,” “recommended,” or “not recommended” to serve as judges.

The qualifications were based on integrity, legal ability, legal experience, fair-mindedness, promptness, professionalism and judicial temperament, public and community services, and other qualifications bearing upon their fitness for the office.

Bar members were instructed to vote only if they had sufficient information concerning the candidates to form an opinion of their qualifications. There were 423 responses.
