Jacki Taylor, chief executive officer of Save the Family Foundation of Arizona, opposes Prop. 115 (“Prop. 115 only adds politics to our courts,” AFN, Oct. 21) on the incorrect basis that politics, not merit, is what’s used to select judges. Removing politics from court retention or appointments is nonsense, period. Everything involving the government is political.

At least voting in favor of Prop. 115, judges’ orders go public; so voters are empowered to make informed decisions on judge retention contrary to judicial appointments originally made by a governor not all voted for.
