The following ballot recommendations for judges come from the California Eagle Forum in Santa Rosa, which is a conservative organization. For future elections, make a note that www.judgevoterguide.com is a helpful site you can use.
Chief Justice - Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye: No Recomendation
She was appointed to the Municipal Court by Deukmejian, the Superior Court by Pete Wilson and the Appellate Court by Schwarzenegger. She is opposed by the Green Party.
Associate Justice - Ming W. Chin: No Recommendation
Appointed by Governor Pete Wilson in 1996 and retained by voters in 1998 by 69%. Known as a conservative judge; has always ruled correctly supporting Prop 22 and Prop 8.
Associate Justice - Carlos R. Moreno: No
He is one of the judges who struck down Prop 22 and voted to do the same to Prop 8. He voted in favor of tougher gun control, and voted against Prop 21, tougher penalties on gang related crime.
Court of Appeal, District 1, Division 1: Associate Justice - Kathleen M. Banke: YES
Appointed to the Appellate Court in 2009 by Schwarzenegger, and proudly states that she is a Republican.
She is from Livermore.
Associate Justice - Robert L. Dondero: YES
Appointed by Schwarzenegger at the same time as Banke. He also is not afraid to state that he is a Republican (even though he lives in San Francisco).
Court of Appeal, District 1, Division 2:
Associate Justice - James R. Lambden: YES
Appointed by Governor Pete Wilson in 1996 and voted in by the people in 1998 by 74% of the vote.
Court of Appeal, District 1, Division 3: Associate Justice - Martin J. Jenkins: YES
Appointed in 2008 by Schwarzenegger. As a District Judge in 2007, he threw out a suit by Attorney General Jerry Brown's seeking to hold automakers responsible for global warming. On that decision alone, he deserves to be elected.
Associate Justice - Peter J. Siggins: YES
Appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Appellate Court in 2005. He later became the legal affairs secretary and interim chief of staff to Schwarzenegger.
Court of Appeal, District 1, Division 4:
Associate Justice - Timothy A. Reardon: YES
Appointed by Deukmejian in 1990, retained by the vote of the people in 1994. He serves on the board of the Salvation Army and Catholic Charities.
Court of Appeal, District 1, Division 5:
Associate Justice - Terence L. Bruiniers: YES
Appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger in June of 2009. He is from Lafayette and had served as a judge for the Contra Costa Superior Court since 1998.
Associate Justice - Henry Needham Jr.: YES
He was appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger in December of 2006. If he was appointed by a Republican governor, maybe he will make decisions like a Republican, or maybe not. You can vote yes if you want to be trusting.
Lastly, both candidates for Superintendent of Public Instruction are Democrats. Of the two, California Eagle Forum suggests a vote for Larry Aceves.
