Republicans and Democrats alike should and do support Rex Renk for clerk of the Montana Supreme Court. Unlike most elected positions, the office is not about politics or setting policy. The office protects public access to Montana’s highest court, preserves court records and assists the public with their cases.
As an experienced attorney, I know that the judiciary is critical to protecting legal rights. The clerk’s office is a vital component of the judicial process. Renk has spent years as a deputy clerk and is running to fill the position which will be vacated when the current clerk retires at the end of the term. Renk has the experience and competency to ensure continuity of quality service.
Renk is endorsed by the former U.S. Supreme Court clerk, seven former Montana Supreme Court justices, a steering committee of nearly 60 Montana attorneys and community leaders, and members of both political parties.
There is good reason for this broad support — Renk has a proven track record. Those who deal with the legal rights of Montanans want Rex Renk for clerk of court.
