Widespread support is telling

It is about as rare for the local criminal defense lawyers to agree with the district attorney as it is for Republicans and Democrats in Congress to agree about anything. That’s why the widespread agreement to back┬áJanene Beronio is so notable.

The fact that all current and retired Yolo County Superior Court judges have endorsed her is important but not surprising since they have seen her dedication as an important judicial officer. However, the fact that both sides of the criminal Bar, including District Attorney Jeff Reisig and many prominent private defense lawyers and public defenders have endorsed Beronio is a tribute to her thoughtful judicial impartiality and temperament.

Backing that is this widespread is, in my 45 years of practice here, unprecedented. She has my total support.
