I am supporting Janene Beronio for Yolo Superior Court judge. When I first started practicing law in Yolo County in 1983, Janene was a deputy district attorney. Although she was an adversary, she was fair. She was hard-working.
Twenty-five years ago, the court hired Janene as a court commissioner. She runs a very efficient courtroom and has done so ever since she was appointed.
She has handled a broad range of assignments, including civil, criminal and juvenile cases. She developed a misdemeanor disposition schedule that has been used as a model by other courts.
Since that time, Janene has become my colleague and a mentor. I have been on the bench for more than seven years. I appreciate her advice and insight that her judicial experience offers. She has served the Yolo County courts for nearly 35 years.
The other candidates have chosen to pursue careers outside of Yolo County. They have had little contact with our court.
Janene Beronio is the best qualified candidate for Superior Court judge. Elect her on June 3.
