Rex Armstrong – Position 10

Skills: I became a judge on the Court of Appeals in 1995 by election to an open seat. Since then, I have participated with my colleagues in deciding thousands of appeals. Before joining the court, I practiced law in Oregon for 16 years, focused on appeals.

3 things I will do if I win:
1. Judges play an important but limited role, which is to give effect to the policy choices made by others. I am proud, and humbled, to have served 23 years on the Court of Appeals, and I ask for your vote to allow me to continue to do that work.

Kyle L Krohn – Position 10

Skills: I’m a lawyer. I help people appeal their criminal charges. I make sure the judge followed the law.

3 things I will do if I win:
Icon: A picture of the American flag with 13 stripes and 50 stars. 1. I will explain all of my rulings. Judges should always explain their rulings. Right now they explain less than half of them.
Icon: A picture of the Statue of Liberty. 2. I will be fair. Judges should decide cases based on the law, not their feelings. Explanations can help prevent bias.
Icon: A laptop 3. I will work hard. Judges hear many appeals. I handle many appeals in my current job, so I know I can do a good job as a judge.
