Lawyers’ choice speaks volumes

By
From page A16 | May 18, 2014 |

I have known Janene Beronio for a number of years and have found her to be a really good listener, but also someone who hears what is being said. The world is full of talkers — but it seems to me that a person who wants to be a judge should be a good listener first.

You have to not only listen to what people have to tell you, but you have to also hear what it is that they are saying. Janene Beronio has been a Yolo Court commissioner for many years and I am sure she would be a really fine judge if she is elected in June.

One other thing: It’s really hard for voters to evaluate candidates for judge. That’s because it’s not a political office — it’s a judicial office, and it’s hard for folks who aren’t in court to know what it is judges really do and what really goes on in court. That’s why I thought the endorsement of Janene by the Yolo County Bar Association is so significant.

The Yolo Bar is made up of the family law attorneys, juvenile law attorneys, civil lawyers, probate lawyers, deputy district attorneys, deputy public defenders and criminal defense attorneys who practice in the Yolo courts day after day. They see and know, first-hand, what’s going on in the courts.

The County Bar Association held a forum and invited all four candidates for judge to come and speak and answer questions. After the forum, the Bar took a vote of all the members. The result speaks volumes: The Yolo County Bar Association voted for Janene Beronio as the best candidate for judge. But more importantly, it was 78 percent of the Bar that voted for Janene. That means the other three candidates — combined — only got 22 percent of the vote. To me, that speaks volumes.
