Two vie for open judge seat

Ray Shine’s lifelong commitment to Nevada County is exceptional. Ray grew up here and has spent his entire professional career serving our county. He is a man of integrity, honesty and fairness. His dedication to the people of Nevada County is evident in the long list of his community service accomplishments such as founding President of the Nevada County United Way. Ray also served as President and member of three different nonprofits who care for the disabled in our community … Nevada County Community Workshop, Neighborhood Center for the Arts, and Community Service Council. Ray is committed to making a difference and will work to protect us and keep us safe. Please join me on Tuesday and elect Ray Shine for Superior Court Judge.

Being a “good guy” or even a “good attorney” doesn’t automatically translate into being a good judge. Any lawyer can be taught how to be a Judge – in fact new Judges have to go to “Judge” school – but one thing can’t be taught, and that is judicial temperament. Either you have it or you don’t.




Having had dealings with both Ray Shine and Tom Anderson, there is no question that Tom Anderson possesses the kind of temperament that makes the few other outstanding Nevada County judges stand out. With Tom Anderson on the bench, the county will be able to point with pride to the county’s growing number of exceptional judges – those judges who, even if they rule against you, are respected for their opinions and set an attorney to wondering if maybe they were wrong all along.

I urge Nevada County voters to elect a judge we don’t have to apologize for, as we have had to with other judges. That man is Tom Anderson.

I have known Ray Shine for years as a caring and involved individual. He is uniquely suited for judge given his experience and long term involvement with Nevada County. His commitment and love of the law are important attributes that he will bring to the job. Join me in voting for Ray Shine for Superior Court Judge.

I am an enthusiastic supporter of Tom Anderson for judge because of his proven record of administering justice and working to prevent recidivism.
