At the last meeting we had a brief discussion about the judges that are up for reelection this November.
I decided to do a brief investigation, and it turns out that all of them were appointed by either Jerry Brown or Gavin Newsom as they are all state level judges.
When you look at the makeup of the group, it looks a lot like the makeup of California (Humboldt, not so much).
There are seven women and six men.
There are eight whites, two Asians, two African-Americans, and one Hispanic.
There is even one who is an openly declared lesbian, and another who is most known for supporting gay marriage rights.
So glad to be living in California where it isn’t just a bunch of old white men dictating how we should live.
