Voting against a amendment 3 will preserve your access to the courts. Lawyers and judges throughout the state are working to defeat this measure. Lead the way - and make sure we have open and fair access to the courts.
Election Day is finally upon us, and I urge all of you to vote tomorrow. As you know, Amendment 3 on the Missouri ballot would inject politics into the selection of our Supreme Court and Court of Appeals judges. For that reason, the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association and I urge you to vote “NO” on Amendment 3.
Because voters approved The Missouri Plan 72 years ago, we have benefitted from fair and impartial courts. Missouri has been a model for the nation on how to select judges in the least political manner.
It has never been more important to show your support for keeping politics and politicians out of our courtrooms. I encourage you to show your support for The Missouri Plan by voting “NO” on Constitutional Amendment 3. For more information, please visitwww.MoFairCourts.com.
