Your Opinion: Event evokes appearance of partisanship

Your Opinion: Event evokes appearance of partisanship

April 18th, 2013 by Mary Miranda, Lohman in News

Dear Editor:

I find it interesting that The Cole County Democratic Central Committee is honoring Judge Patricia Joyce at an award dinner on April 26.

Are judges not supposed to be impartial? Why is she being honored by a partisan committee? I am guessing that, as a registered Republican, I would not be welcome to such an event.

Does that mean I would be treated differently in her courtroom, should I have the misfortune of finding myself there? I certainly hope not. But the appearance of partisanship is very unfortunate.
