YOLO COUNTY NEWS
99 CENTS

The judges have spoken

From page C2 | March 28, 2014 |

It’s been years since I’ve written a letter to the editor. But I wanted to highlight what I consider to be a remarkable event that has just occurred in Yolo County.

We have an election coming up in less than two months — on June 3. One of the ballot choices we have is an election for a new Yolo Superior Court judge, replacing Judge Steve Mock who is retiring after a long and distinguished career on the Yolo Bench. There are four candidates running for this open judicial seat.

The remarkable event is the following: There are 10 active Yolo Superior Court judges on the Yolo bench. In addition, there are 9 living retired Yolo judges. It’s remarkable to note that all 19 of these active and retired Yolo judges support one candidate for election. That is, every single one of the active and retired Yolo judges agree on the same candidate to be the next Judge. These 19 judges, active and retired, comprise over 250 years of collective judicial experience here in Yolo County. They know what it takes to be a good judge. All agree that Janene Beronio is the candidate to elect as our next Judge.

Janene Beronio, herself, has a wealth of judicial experience. She has served as a Yolo Superior Court Commissioner for over 25 years. Her three opponents, collectively, have zero years experience as a judge or subordinate judicial officer. Beronio has a broad and deep level of experience adjudicating cases in many areas of the law. Court commissioners are subordinate judicial officers, appointed by the judges of the Superior Court. By law or stipulation of the parties, commissioners can do virtually everything a Superior Court judge can do. And Beronio has served as a judicial officer in juvenile court, criminal, civil, small claims, unlawful detainer and traffic court. I have personally worked with and observed Beronio, particularly when I served as Presiding Judge of the Yolo Superior Court. She knows the law. She is organized and works hard, efficiently moving one of our heaviest volume courts. And I’ve seen her treat litigants, victims, defendants, witnesses and lawyers with courtesy and fairness.

For me, and my colleague judges, the choice is pretty clear. Please join me in voting for Janene Beronio for Judge on June 3.

Judge Dave Rosenberg
