LP Pays Attention
Dellinger is a non-traditional candidate in a couple ways. For one, she comes from an academic background, but has written opinions for a Ninth Circuit court of appeals judge, as well as done research and writing for another federal judge in California.
But more pertinently, she has an outwardly social-justice oriented outlook that sets her apart from other judicial candidates, writing on her website about her belief in gun violence prevention strategies and other appropriate government regulation, desire to, when possible, challenge sentencing practices, and help minorities and people experiencing homelessness.
Host and attorney Tiffiny Blacknell:
Myanna Dellinger is not afraid to say that we need racial justice. She is brave enough to admit that there are racial issues to be dealt with. She is willing to think outside the box, which is important. Her knee-jerk reaction would not be to incarcerate. She is thoughtful enough to think about the long-term consequences of incarceration of black and brown people.
She has not been tainted by being a prosecutor. There are already too many prosecutors (“deputy district attorneys”) on the bench. Myanna would add something to the conversation. There is a need for diversity on the bench.
I’m definitely agreeing with the choice for Myanna Dellinger.
I do not support prosecutors running for judge. That’s just asking for more of the same and helps cultivate a criminal justice system that sees prosecutors working hand in hand with their former colleagues who are now the judge.

While Myanna may not have the trial experience of her opponent, she relies on who she is as a person and what she believes in when she asks for your support. That's a lot more than a candidate who you don't know anything about except that they prosecuted criminals. Anyone can do that...but who is the person...what do they believe is important? Simply saying vote for me because I prosecuted criminals doesn't compare with voting for someone because you agree what they stand for. One can learn HOW to be a judge after being elected...but you can't quickly learn how to have admirable values and beliefs and skills for "judging" other fellow human beings. This is why I support Myanna...and I'm a former prosecutor btw!
