• First as Attorney General and again as Governor, I hired and promoted Susan Crawford to take on tough jobs, from overseeing a massive criminal caseload as an Assistant Attorney General and criminal appeals director, to serving as my Chief Legal Counsel in the Governor’s Office. Susan is an exceptional lawyer who rises to every challenge with intellect, perseverance, and common sense. Susan will be an outstanding judge for the people of Dane County.

  • As a former Assistant Attorney General, Susan Crawford understands the complexities of the criminal justice system. She knows that in order to keep our communities safe we need to work harder upstream to tackle the conditions that lead to crime. As our next Dane County judge, she’ll insure victim’s rights are respected and seek solutions that hold people accountable and address the root causes of crime.

  • I have admired Susan Crawford’s legal abilities for over 20 years. Susan is smart, compassionate, and hard working. She has vast experience in both civil and criminal law. As Dane County’s next criminal court judge, Susan will bring an understanding of the intricacies and nuances of the criminal justice system to the bench. Susan is exactly the type of person we want serving as a judge, and is an investment in our future.

    Judge Jill Karofsky
    Dane County Circuit Court, Branch 12
  • As your former County Executive, and as a lawyer myself, I know first-hand how important our judges are to protect our rights. Susan Crawford has devoted her career to doing exactly that. Her work at the Pines Bach law firm taking on powerful interests, her work at the DNR protecting our natural resources, and her work at the Wisconsin Department of Justice will make her a great judge, serving all of us. I urge you to support Susan.

    Kathleen Falk
    Former Dane County Executive

Her history of hard work, sound judgment, civility, and integrity have earned her the respect of lawyers and judges throughout the state. I am pleased to endorse her candidacy.

  • Susan Crawford has an exceptionally broad legal background gained from both private practice and public service. Her deep knowledge of criminal law, acquired from handling hundreds of felony cases as an Assistant Attorney General, is a critical asset for an incoming judge who will serve a primarily criminal caseload. She has my enthusiastic endorsement.

    Judge Bill Hanrahan
    Dane County Circuit Court, Branch 7
  • I cannot imagine a person more suited to be a circuit court judge than Susan Crawford. She has wide ranging legal experience and outstanding judgment. Susan is thoughtful and deliberate, treats everyone with courtesy and respect, and has the temperament all judges should possess. I have often referred to her as ‘the brilliant and unflappable Susan Crawford.’ She has my unqualified endorsement to be our next Dane County Circuit Court judge.

  • Susan Crawford is the clear choice for Dane County’s next circuit court judge. Susan is a strong advocate for treatment courts and programs to divert non-violent offenders from jail.
