The committee reviewed Kull’s written work, interviewed colleagues, adversaries and judges whom he had appeared before, and read Kull’s impeccable bar evaluations, thus determining that Mr. Kull was qualified. Because of his extensive trial experience, Judge Kull has served in the Domestic Violence Court and the 1st Municipal District Misdemeanor and Felony courts.

Over the last 30 days of the campaign, Judge Kull remains committed to working hard to be an independent voice on the Bench as a candidate not aligned with the political power brokers.
