Supporting the incumbents
Judge Andrew Cheng, Judge Curtis Karnow, Judge Cynthia Lee, and Judge Jeff Ross exemplify our community’s values and the diversity of opinion -- and are committed to justice for all. I’m proud to join my colleagues and dozen more from San Francisco and across our great state of California in fully supporting their re-elections.
Nancy Pelosi, US Congresswoman
All of these judges have demonstrated their commitment to serving the people of San Francisco through the fair and impartial administration of justice. As conservative interests throughout the country try to politicize our judiciary, we can take a stand in San Francisco by voting to retain these supremely qualified judges.
Kamala Harris, US Senator
Supporting the challengers
Regardless of the election outcome, these four challengers have already won. They’ve exposed their judicial critics as hypocrites, and shed light on the improper efforts by highly-placed members of our judiciary to erect obstacles blocking the exercise of constitutional rights.Matt Gonzalez, Chief Attorney of SF Public Defenders Office
Four incredible public defenders are running for Superior Court Judge against incumbents appointed by a Republican governor. This is what organized movement electoral politics looks like.Hillary Ronen, District 9 SF Supervisor
Like our own volunteer counselors and attorneys, public defenders are the unsung heroes of San Francisco’s judicial system. They fight every day for folks on the brink of losing everything, often due to false accusations level against them by greedy landlords with pockets deep enough to wreck havoc on anybody in their way.SF Tenants Union
