LANSING — Michigan Supreme Court Justices Kurtis Wilder and Elizabeth Clement announced their re-election campaigns on April 30. The two vowed to work together on the campaign trail.
“I am proud today to join my colleague Elizabeth Clement in launching our campaign so that we can continue our important work on the Michigan Supreme Court,” Justice Wilder said in a press release. “Our mission to uphold our Constitution, defend the rule of law and deliver justice to the great people of Michigan is not only vital to maintaining our free society, but rewarding and fulfilling to those of us who have dedicated our lives to the law. I can’t think of a better colleague to work with in that effort than Justice Elizabeth Clement.”
Justice Clement expressed her feelings in the press release as well.
“Serving on the Michigan Supreme Court is the honor of a lifetime and a tremendous responsibility that I take very seriously,” she said. “The people, the families and job creators of our state demand that our courts be focused solely on upholding the rule of law in a fair and impartial manner and that we as jurists not legislate from the bench. I am proud of the fact that is the message Justice Wilder and I will take to the people of our great state.”
