LANSING – At its state convention in Lansing, the Michigan Democratic Party today nominated Judge Connie Marie Kelley, Judge Shelia Johnson and Bridget Mary McCormack as candidates for the Michigan Supreme Court.
“Connie Marie Kelley, Shelia Johnson and Bridget Mary McCormack have worked tirelessly in their legal careers to mentor and protect children,” Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said. “On the Michigan Supreme Court, they will ensure individuals and families get a fair shot and that everyone plays by the same rules, including insurance companies and special interests.”
Johnson will face off against the Republicans’ candidate, incumbent Justice Brian Zahra, to fill a two-year term. Kelley and McCormack will run against incumbent Justice Stephen Markman and Oakland County Circuit Judge Colleen O’Brien for eight-year terms.
“The current Supreme Court has misguided priorities,” said Brewer. “The choice this November is clear. Voters will chose between two different sets of candidates — these three candidates, who will work to protect children and families, versus the Republicans’ candidates, who will continue to do the bidding of their campaign donors and side with corporate special interests.
“The Michigan Democratic Party is proud to nominate Judge Connie Marie Kelley, Judge Shelia Johnson and Bridget Mary McCormack.”
