Patterico's Pontifications


Los Angeles Superior Court Judicial Race Recommendations

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:59 am

No disrespect is intended to anyone I am not recommending, but I know some people better than others. I am not recommending a “vote for any Deputy D.A.” vote but rather a vote for these people:

Office No. 16: Hubert Yun. Hubert was my colleague in the gang division in Long Beach, and continues to be a colleague in that courthouse even though I am no longer in that division. He’s very smart and has helped me with issues where other people lacked an answer. I’ll be voting for him.

Office No. 20: Mary Ann Escalante. I’ve known Mary Ann off and on for many years. She has handled heavy cases in the office and always has a smile on her face. She’ll do a good job as a judge.

Office No. 60: Tony Cho. Tony is a very friendly person who works hard and is always volunteering to help other people. He will be reasonable and will refrain from being a tyrant on the bench.

Office No. 118: Troy Davis. Troy is another colleague in Long Beach. He has a good reputation and is perhaps one of the most even-tempered people I have ever met. If you tell someone you’re afraid to vote for Troy because you think he’ll fly off the handle and scream at people, they will laugh and know you’re joking because that is unimaginable. (I’ve made the joke a couple of times and everyone always laughs.)

My daughter will be voting for the first time today, which is exciting.

Good luck to all deserving candidates.

P.S. I do not share a single recommendation with the Los Angeles Times. So I’ve got that going for me. Which is nice.
