Tice-Raskin is caring, curious and committed

As I understand it, all the judicial officers in Nevada County, active and retired, have endorsed Robert Tice-Raskin for judge. As one of those retired judges, here’s why I did.

Several months ago, Robert, who I had never met, called and said he would like to meet with me in order to ask my thoughts about our court system, to give me the chance to ask him anything I wanted, and also to just get to know him.

I was delighted to offer my observations about the strengths and weaknesses of our court and, more importantly, to get to know Robert by asking questions about his motivation, interests, concerns, and values as related to becoming a bench officer in Nevada County. Although I was impressed with his answers, it was his desire to learn and educate himself about the court and the job of judging that really caught my attention. I am supporting Robert Tice-Raskin, and urge you to do so, because in making that phone call and reaching out, he illustrated by his conduct that he is caring, curious to learn, and committed to being the best jurist he can be for our community.

Judge Al Dover, (retired)

Nevada City
