Thrilled to run in Alex’s Great State Race alongside my colleague, Justice Richard Bernstein, as well as Lt. Governor Brian Calley and the young men and women of both MSU and UM ROTC. This great event raises funds for the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities. To date, over $85,000 has been donated to help address the needs of MSU and UM students with disabilities with a special focus on challenges faced by students fighting cancer. A cause this important is definitely something both UM and MSU fans can support together! #GoGreen!!!

As only the 11th female justice in the history of the Michigan Supreme Court, I am proud to have the endorsement and highest rating of the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan. This trailblazing organization was founded in 1919, the year before women obtained the right to vote, during a time when there were very few opportunities for women attorneys. It has spent 100 years advancing the interests of women in the legal field. #ClementForJustice #SHARE

Thank you to the Hudson-Webber Foundation for hosting the very successful two day Michigan Safety and Justice Roundtable last week. I was privileged to facilitate the discussion on Alternatives to incarceration. The open exchange of ideas between those who work in or are impacted by the criminal justice system is vital to successful and effective criminal justice reform.

I couldn't have less respect for someone, than I do for you right now. This joke of a Governor is making a mockery of our state, and your decision to vote against the Supreme Court taking the case, prolongs the misery of the many people being affected by her completely politically based decisions on shutdowns, lockdowns, etc. I hope whatever you are getting in return is worth it.
Congratulations Elizabeth
Super.
She showed mercy to the people of Michigan, and we rewarded her with our votes.
You deserve every bit of your strong victory
Good luck Beth! Cheering for you!
You have my vote Justice Clement.
There seems to be some confusion about where Justice Clement stands on the rights of the unborn child and the 2nd Amendment. Just where does she stand on these issues. ???
Already voted for you on the absentee ballot.
How about posting what she plans on doing for MI if elected!
Do you support Proposal 2?
Wishing you success.
