Politics and judges don’t mix

By From page B7 | June 01, 2014

Why is a candidate for judge promoting the fact that he is supported by one political party? Shouldn’t we want judges who are nonpartisan? If he is elected, will he then ask you what your political affiliation is if you appear before him? Just as that is irrelevant, a candidate’s political affiliation should be irrelevant.

We should want a judge who is neutral. A candidate who so vocally presents himself as one-sided should cause us to run the other way. I’m voting for Commissioner Janene Beronio. She has proved herself to be neutral for more than 25 years.
