Last Chance to Speak Out – Governor’s Office seeks public comment on Colorado Supreme Court nominees before deciding
Governor Ritter has asked for public comment on the three nominees (he’ll pick one of the three) put forward by the Supreme Court Nominating Commission to replace outgoing Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey, who announced in June that she would resign rather than be held accountable by voters this November.

The Denver Post profiled the 3 Colorado Supreme Court nominees in successive articles last weekend (in order of appearance: El Paso District Judge David Prince, Deputy Attorney General Monica Marquez, and Colorado Appeals Court Judge Robert Russel); additional, substantive information (including the public applications submitted to the Supreme Court Nominating Commission, which met in secret to evaluate and interview a total of 31 applicants) is available on the Law Week Colorado website (”Governor’s Office Makes Public Applications Of Justice Finalists“).
Don’t let your opportunity to weigh in on this important issue slip away by failing to act when you had the chance – indeed, when you were asked to offer your opinion. Write the governor today to express YOUR views on selecting our next Colorado Supreme Court justice…
We The People can (indeed, as citizens, we must) hold our public officials – both elected & appointed – accountable. Be a citizen, not a subject – get informed, then express your opinion on which of these three nominees the governor should be appoint to become the next justice of the Colorado Supreme Court (it will be another 2 years before you’ll be able to weigh in at the ballot box, at the conclusion of their first – probationary – term of office).
Exercise your right to vote “NO” this November on the four (er, three remaining) ‘unjust justices’ of the Colorado Supreme Court’s “Mullarkey Majority”- (Justices Michael Bender, Alex Martinez, Nancy Rice – soon minus Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey) who need YOUR approval to continue taking away your constitutional rights: your right to vote on tax increases, your right to defend your home or business against seizure via eminent domain abuse, your right to be fairly represented in the legislature and Congress, and your right to enjoy the benefits of the rule of law, instead of suffering under rule by activist, agenda-driven “justices.” Support Clear The Bench Colorado with your comments (Sound Off!) and contributions – and exercise your right to vote “NO” on giving these unjust justices another 10-year term!
