Judicial nominating system is not broken

Our governor and some legislators believe the judicial selection system that has served our state so well for nearly 60 years is somehow broken and in need of a fix. Yet, this is the same system that in just the last eight months has given Gov. Kim Reynolds the opportunity to appoint two highly-qualified and distinguished individuals to the supreme court — Susan Christensen and Christopher McDonald.

It seems the legislation currently under discussion is a misguided solution in search of a problem — a problem that simply does not exist.
