Why are you running for this office?
Joseph Hoffman: Judges, local deputies and legal
professionals endorsing me know that I will be fair, respect citizens’
constitutional rights, and interpret existing laws rather than legislate from
the bench. They also recognize my genuine commitment to protecting victims’
rights, imposing strict consequences on those convicted of criminal acts, and
making prompt decisions to help ease our backlogged judicial system. No other
candidate matches my range of local experience. As an attorney for 18 years and
an El Dorado Superior Court judge pro tem since 2001, I have worked diligently
to provide equitable and timely outcomes to hundreds of individuals, families
and small-business owners. As a small-business owner myself, and as a taxpayer,
I value an efficient judicial process that respects people's time and finances,
and your tax dollars. I would be honored to earn your vote on June 5.
