One and one-half days a week, Warren Stracener presides over traffic court, a job formerly done by a commissioner. The remaining three days of his court week, he hears juvenile cases which are closed to the public. The only people, therefore, in a position to evaluate his performance are his staff, the litigants, and the lawyers who appear before him. There’s a reason that the overwhelming majority of attorneys who have been in his court oppose his candidacy. He’s not a very good judge. In the 22 months since his appointment, he has yet to master the limited area of law he is assigned or acquire the skills necessary to manage his calendar.
We believe that Joseph Hoffman has the background, integrity and temperament to be an excellent judge. He’s a trial lawyer with a broad range of legal experience who has consistently volunteered his time to serve his community. Please join us in electing Joe Hoffman for Superior Court Judge on Nov. 6.
