Two Harbors lawyer announces candidacy for judgeTimothy Costley said he has “the courtroom experience, knowledge, temperament and common sense to be a fair and impartial judge.”
Two Harbors lawyer Timothy Costley today became the third person to announce candidacy to replace 6th Judicial District Judge Kenneth Sandvik, who has chosen not to run for a sixth term.
Costley, a 15-year lawyer with a private practice in his hometown, said he has “the courtroom experience, knowledge, temperament and common sense to be a fair and impartial judge.”
Sandvik’s position on the bench is responsible for hearing all the state district court cases on the North Shore at the Lake County Courthouse in Two Harbors and the Cook County Courthouse in Grand Marais.
“To date, I am the only candidate that has filed who lives and works on the North Shore,” Costley said. “I have the experience to be a judge districtwide and more specifically to serve as the North Shore judge.”
Duluth private practice attorney Mike Cuzzo and Northeastern Minnesota public defender John Lind announced their candidacy Wednesday.
