Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Terrence O'Donnell

Candidate for
Judge; Supreme Court; Unexpired Term Ending December 31, 2006

This information is provided by the candidate

It is a privilege to serve as a member of the Ohio Supreme Court. Ours is a collegial court, handling matters of great public interest which affect the lives of 11 million Ohioans. There are no issues in judicial campaigns, because judges are not representatives of viewpoints or interested groups, but rather take an oath to support the Constitution and to uphold the laws of our state. I recognize that it is the role of the legislative branch of government to make law, the role of the executive to enforce law and the role of the judiciary to interpret law. My interest in law and my common sense approach to decision making originates with family values learned from my father, a Cleveland Police Sergeant, who served for 33 years. Industry, integrity and a desire to be open-minded and impartial are hallmarks of my 24-year judicial career.
