Judges, Commissioner, DA Endorse Rebecca Dallet For Supreme Court Justice, Say Burns “Not Qualified”

Officials say only Dallet has the experience demanded of a Supreme Court Justice

Today, the Dallet for Justice Campaign released a new ad, titled “No Question,” in the race for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice.

Circuit Court Judges David Swanson and Mary Triggiano, District Attorney John Chisholm, and Court Commissioner Robert Webb, formerly a criminal defense attorney, state their support for Rebecca Dallet in the new ad, citing her 20 years of standing up for victims in tough cases as a prosecutor and a judge, while pointing out that Dallet’s opponent, Tim Burns, lacks the experience and judgement for the job.

The officials note that a seat on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court is a position that demands experience and point out their concerns regarding Burns’ lack of experience in Wisconsin’s courtrooms.

The officials also cite Burns’ irresponsible and unethical partisan rhetoric during this campaign, calling it “inappropriate for anyone who seeks to serve on Wisconsin’s highest court.”

More than 300 judges, prosecutors, and elected officials across the state have endorsed Judge Rebecca Dallet because of her “broad experience” and ability “to protect our values and our rights on the Supreme Court,” as highlighted in the ad.

The Dallet campaign will run the ad to a targeted statewide audience starting today.


Elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2014, Judge Rebecca Dallet currently serves on the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. She has spent the past 23 years working in Wisconsin courtrooms – first as a prosecutor and now as judge presiding over more than 10,000 cases and more than 230 jury trials in a wide range of areas from domestic violence and misdemeanor court, to homicide and drug court, and civil and small claims court. Judge Dallet is running to protect our Wisconsin values during a time when our most basic rights are under attack. She lives in Whitefish Bay with her husband, Brad, and their three teenage daughters.
