Please add yourself to the list of Susan’s endorsements for Dane County Judge.

I promoted Susan 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.

Jim Doyle
Governor

As your former County Executive, and as a lawyer myself, I know first-hand how important our judges are to protect our rights. Susan 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
County Exec

I’ve known Susan for over ten years. She is not only a brilliant lawyer, but a kind, compassionate person with common sense. She will be a great Judge with a commitment to justice for all.

Charles Tubbs
Dane Co Emergency Manager and former Capitol Police Chief

Susan 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 Judge

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.

Joe Parisi
Dane County Executive
