Former El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools Vicki Barber has endorsed candidate for El Dorado County Superior Court Judge, Dylan Sullivan.

“Dylan enjoys a tremendous amount of support in our community because she excels as a judicial officer and dedicates herself to improving the lives of children in crisis,” said Barber.

Sullivan currently serves as a Superior Court Commissioner for El Dorado County Court. In this capacity she handles cases involving family law matters such as child custody, domestic violence, and divorce, among other disputes. In addition, she is a moderator for the “Finding Solutions for Kids in Crisis” program, a public forum sponsored by the El Dorado Community Fund.

When asked about the support of Barber, Sullivan said, “It is such an honor to receive Vicki’s support. She is loved and respected throughout the community and she has made important strides in improving both the wellbeing and education of our children. As judge, I hope to continue her work by ensuring a safe, healthy environment for our children to learn, grow and overcome any challenges they may face in their young lives.”

A dedicated member of the community, Sullivan uses her experience to serve local organizations and promote the best interests of children, especially those in high-risk situations. She is a member of the El Dorado County Child Abuse Prevention Council, which provides safe and healthy situations for children. She serves as an advisory member to the Board of the El Dorado County Big Brothers Big Sisters, which provides mentors to children in high-risk situations, and as a member of the Kiwanis organization, she finds ways to provide local children with opportunities for success.

Prior to her appointment with El Dorado Superior Court, Sullivan worked for the California Parole Authority in litigation management and as a Deputy Commissioner. As a Commissioner, she adjudicated matters related to life inmates seeking parole and parolees. Before joining the Parole Board, she practiced criminal defense and civil litigation.

Throughout her career, Sullivan has always held the safety of her community in the highest regard. She has also witnessed the hardships that fall upon children to parents who have made the wrong decisions in their lives. As a member on the Core Committee for the Department of Justice Safe Haven grant and Court Judicial Officer for the AOC grant, she assists in developing and implementing policy for the Parent-to-Parent supervised visitation program.

Sullivan was appointed to the bench in September 2011. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology from the University of California at Davis and graduated Order of the Coif with great distinction and highest honors from McGeorge School of Law, at the University of the Pacific.
