News outlets across the state reported this week that Great Falls attorney Beth Best has officially announced her candidacy for the Montana Supreme Court Justice that will be open when Justice Jim Nelson retires. Beth stated she
“is running for the Montana Supreme Court because I believe in public service, and access to justice for every person as guaranteed by our Constitution.”
Throughout state history only four women have ever been elected to the Montana Supreme Court. If elected, Best would be the fifth. You can read more about Best from her press release, a portion of which is pasted below the fold.
