Commissions that focus on 3 areas set the framework for Colorado's judicial branch:
1) The Judicial Nominating Commissions,
2) The Commission on Judicial Discipline, and
3) The Commissions on Judicial Performance.
So to improve the system, we must improve these commissions. It's been a long time since any of the commissions have been reviewed, and we need to make some changes.
There are other issues that need to be addressed in Colorado's judicial branch as well. From 'retired' unaccountable judges still serving on the bench to the judicial branch excepting itself from Colorado's Open Records Act, we have a lot of work to do to improve the system.
And that's not even mentioning our state court administrator's office that has an annual budget that exceeds 500 million dollars. It's run by an unelected official who's already misled the legislature to the tune of millions of taxpayer dollars.
To build a better justice system, we must change the law. From new legislation to editing or amending the constitution, we can get it done if we work together.
We formed The Judicial Integrity Project to get the process moving in the right direction. By helping us, you'll help yourself to a better justice system.
