Courtney Henry Votes Democratic/Ron Williams Votes Republican (Opponents for AR Ct of Appeals)

There has been considerable controversy over Courtney Henry and Ron Williams' race for a seat on the Arkansas Court of Appeals, the state’s second highest court. The paper reported that "Ron Williams hopes his “conservative judicial philosophy” can win him a seat on the Arkansas Court of Appeals.

However, his opponent, Courtney Henry is also appealing to conservative Republican voters, and many people feel she has been quite deceptive in lining up many Republicans as supporters.

It , therefore, should be of interest to many to learn that Courtney Henry's Individual Voting History Report at the courthouse shows that Courtney Henry voted as a Democrat in the 2008 Presidental Primary, which means she voted for either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. Courtney Henry also voted as a Democrat in the 2006 Primary; voted as A Democrat in the Primary Runoff in 2006; and voted as a Democrat in the 2004 Primary.

There is no indication on the voting record that Courtney Henry ever voted as a Republican. (see this link for a copy of the actual voting record: )

On the other hand, Ron Williams' Individual Voting History Record shows that Ron Williams voted as a Republican in the Presidential Primary in 2008; voted as a Republican in the 2006 Primary; voted as a Republican in the 2002 Primary; and voted as Republican in the 3rd Congressional Primary.

There is no indication on the voting record that Ron Williams ever voted as a Democrat. (See this link for a copy of his actual voting record:

Anyone can go to the courthouse and look at these records.

We can't be too diligent in checking out the details on candidates! We must stop just listening to words and look for actions. From the words and demeanor of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on CNN on religion and politics last Sunday night, even a conservative Christian would have been convinced they both were saintly people. Fortunately they have been in the news enough that we know of their actions as well as their words.

Note: When you check the links above for the copy of the actual court record, put the cursor on the information and click; and it will enlarge and make it much clearer. Click again and it will reduce the size. For the Party look at the 5th column for R or D.

I see the Women Action Group is solid for the man.

That certainly speaks well for them. Not like angry race or gender based politics that creates false dividing lines. Truth and untruth ought to be the only dividing line, not what color or sex we are.

Political preference/ideology holds almost no bearing on the outcome of the cases before the Court of Appeals (or even the state Supreme Court). If Ron Williams is trying to set himself up as some sort of advocate for the right, I want no part of that in our judicial system. Likewise, if Courtney Henry tries to set herself up as the liberal protector, I want no part of that. All I want to look for in a future judge is judicial temperament and experience.
