Judges by merit, not political popularity

For many years, the “Sitting Judge Principle” has ensured that Prince George’s County has only the most qualified judges on the bench. Under this principle, the governor appoints our Circuit Court Judges only after these men and women have subjected themselves to rigorous scrutiny and examination.


The selection of judges by merit instead of political popularity protects our community and guarantees that our judges have the highest quality of character, integrity, judicial temperament, and education. We expect and want no less from our judicial system.


The well-qualified and distinguished judges seeking retention this year need and deserve our support. They have served our community and our state extremely well since their appointment.


Our community should be united behind these judges and this important principle. In fact, community leaders and groups, as well as the Maryland State Bar Association have all endorsed the “Sitting Judge Principle.”


Please join us in supporting the Sitting Judges.
