NAME: Tish Chafin

CANDIDATE FOR: West Virginia Supreme Court

PARTY: Democrat

CITY: Charleston

BIOGRAPHY: I graduated from Marshall University and WVU College of Law. I am managing partner of a law firm where I practiced for 15+ years. Serving on the Supreme Court would allow me to combine my legal experience and desire to give back. Read my Balanced Court and Transparency Initiatives, www.chafin2012.com.

QUESTION & ANSWER: Are there any reforms in the West Virginia judicial system that you favor?

"We must restore public confidence in our judiciary. While the Supreme Court has taken steps toward improving our court system, I believe that my Balanced Court Initiative and Transparent Court Initiative will create a level playing field and ensure fairness, impartiality and transparency for those who come before the court."

OTHER CANDIDATES: Chafin faces Democrat Robin Davis and Republicans Allen Loughry and John Yoder for two open seats.
