Sutherland’s founder Gaylord Swim once said:

Those who, for whatever reason, choose not to run for public office, ought to be grateful to those who will, even if we do not always fully agree with them. After all, governing in a free society ought not to be about winning or ruling, rather it is about leading, serving, uniting and about achieving the best solutions under a framework of law. This process requires strong advocates, certainly, but it also takes a counter-balancing sense of humility, civility and dialogue.
