For some 20 years it was my privilege to serve as a judge, first as a District Court Judge in Flathead County, later as a Federal Magistrate Judge for the District of Montana. Prior to that I practiced law before a diverse number of judges at all levels. Based on that experience I believe that a good judge is one who listens carefully to both sides of a dispute, impartially determines the facts, applies the appropriate law, and promptly issues a well reasoned decision. Carole and I have known Bill Hileman since he first moved to Whitefish with his wife Susan. We have found him to be a thoughtful, careful and considerate person. We believe he would be a good judge who would serve our community well. We urge his support for Whitefish Municipal Judge.
