Re: “Local judge, clerk and district attorney races

Your endorsements rely on contradictory treatment of the results of the State Bar Association's Judicial Performance Evaluation for judges. You set aside the results for Nancy Gordon but not for Pat Evans, though you cite courtroom behavior for both. Challenger Storch posted a YouTube clip of Evans that was clearly taken out of context, but I know this only because I did the requisite digging. I urge the IndyWeek to provide links to questionnaire responses within every endorsement - and urge the NC Bar to provide opportunity to Bar members with the ability to make written suggestions to judges for qualitative improvements, and not just a numerical rating. A numerical rating for a 360 style evaluation is insufficient. Most of all, voters need to do due diligence. Dig for information on the web. Scott Holmes of Brock, Payne & Meece wrote of a defendant who was charged for essentially being crippled, indigent, and addicted in a blog post entitled "Guilty of Neglect" on the firm's website. Judge Evans is mentioned. Read the post and find out why. For whom should you vote? Pursue the answer for yourself. As the Oracle in the Matrix told Lawrence Fishburne: "make up your own damn mind!"
