September
6,
2011Supreme Court
Nominating
CommissionChief Justice Michael Bender,
Ex
Officio Chair101 West Colfax Ave., Suite 800Denver, Colorado 80202Dear Supreme Court Nominating Commission:I
am
honored
to
have
the
opportunity to
write
this
letter
in support
of
Judge Brian Boatright'sapplication
to
fill a vacancy on
the
Colorado Supreme Court. Judge Boatright's work,
both
on and
off
the
Bench, makes him
eminently
qualified
to
fill this vacancy.Judge Boatright was appointed
as
judge
to the
First Judicial District Court in August 1999 and
has
been
an
exceptional Judge
from the
beginning.
He
has been rated highly by his peers andconstituents
throughout
his tenure on
the
bench. During his official judicial
review
in 2008, hewas ranked
number
two
statewide among all judges.I first
met
Judge Boatright in 2004,
after
being sworn in
as
a
CASA
(Court
Appointed
SpecialAdvocates).
for
abused
and/or
neglected children.
My
background
as
an African American leadsme
to
be
very concerned
about
how
judges
treatMinorities
in
their
court rooms.
As
a
member
of
the
First Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance, I found Judge
Boatright
to
befair-minded,
well
prepared, articulate, compassionate, caring, intelligent, and
an
excellentlistener.
My
initial
perception
of
his performance on
the
bench
was
confirmed by
comments
from
other court
appointed special advocates. They all agree
that
Judge Boatright's
integrity,
legal expertise,
demeanor
and preparedness are all exceptional and
noteworthy.Community
Service
is
very
important to
Judge Boatright.
He
speaks
frequently
to
schools in
the
Jefferson County School District,
as
well
as
in numerous leadership programs in Golden,Lakewood, and
other
cities in Jefferson County.
His
service
to
the community
and willingness
to
act
as
a
mentorto
CASA
volunteers and others
is
extraordinary and sets him
apart
as
a
true
asset
to
Colorado.
To
demonstrate
those qualities, I
would
like
to
share
an
experience I had
as
a
CASA
volunteer.
Iwas assigned
to
two
children, a sister and a
brother,who
had been removed
from
their
home
because
of
alleged abuses. The
brother
had a series
of
medical problems
dating
back
to
when
hewas a
toddler.
While we worked
as
hard
as
possible
to
create a strong and secure
home
setting
