Another judicial candidate for Livingston County's open seat

We have another judicial candidate. Linda Walker is running for Judge Pikk's seat. From the Argus.

I don't know anything about her. We'll keep you all updated on the judicial races here as there are developments. They are of high priority at the Republican Michigander.

Attorney bids to replace retiring judge
By Lisa Roose-Church

Fowlerville attorney Linda Walker announced Wednesday she is seeking retiring District Judge A. John Pikkarainen's seat in the November election.
She joins Brighton attorney Carol Sue Reader in the race.

Walker, of Unadilla Township, hung out her shingle in Fowlerville after graduating from the Thomas Cooley Law School in 1982.

The University of Michigan graduate has also participated in many community endeavors. However, she says, she "did not keep track of the exact dates of participation as she had not contemplated running for judge" until Pikkarainen decided to retire.
"I thought it would be good for me to run," she said. "(Pikkarainen) had strong ties to the western side of the county. I do, too. I think it's important for all sides of the county to be represented on the bench."

The other reason Walker is running?

Don't know much about her, either, but my conservative hackles go up when I read comments line:

Walker " successfully led community initiatives to save a school, defend rural zoning and pass a special assessment to main roads.

Activities like these tend to eminate from the "Government Knows Best" crowd.

Welcome aboard.

I'm looking forward to the judicial debates that the Argus holds every couple of years. I can usually get a better read out of the candidates there.
