Scott Wales and Kashoua "Kristy" Yang are competing for the Branch 47 judicial seat now held by Milwaukee County Circuit Judge John Siefert. This is the only contested Milwaukee County judicial race this year. Wales and Yang agreed to answer a series of questions from WJI to better inform voters about issues in the race.
This week's question: Do you support the 54 retired judges' proposal to require any circuit court judge to recuse him/herself from cases involving donors and indirect supporters who contribute $1,000 or more to the judge's election effort? (The limit for appeals court and Supreme Court judges would be $2,500 and $10,000, respectively).
Gretchen Schuldt is executive director of the Wisconsin Justice Initiative.
