- Mountain Democrat
Few institutions are as important as our courts, which often have the final say on a wide range of matters that affect our daily lives and our constitutionally protected liberties.
This election, your vote will determine who will become the next judge to join to our county’s Superior Court. I am proud to support Joe Hoffman for judge and hope you will, too.
Having known Joe and his family for many years, I know that he is the real deal professionally and in terms of his character. He is highly accomplished in our courts as an attorney, judge pro tem and private judge, and he strongly supports our constitutional rights. As a longtime gun owner and CCW permit holder, Joe is a proven supporter of the Second Amendment and your right to carry.
Joe Hoffman should also be measured by the company he keeps. Among his many other endorsers are Judges Phimister and Proud, the district attorney, deputy DAs, this newspaper, and scores of attorneys who practice in our courts every day. In fact, Joe Hoffman is the only judicial candidate endorsed by local prosecutors, deputy sheriffs and court clerks.
Please join me and almost everyone else in our legal and law enforcement community in voting for Joe Hoffman for Judge on Nov. 6.
Retired El Dorado County Sheriff
