Metropolitan News-Enterprise Renews Endorsement of David Berger for Judge

 The Los Angeles News-Enterprise, one of the leading legal newspapers in Los Angeles, has renewed their endorsement of David Berger for Judge.

In making their endorsement, the Met-News said "Deputy District Attorney David A. Berger is the clear choice for this office. He has more than two decades of courtroom experience, possesses exceptional skills in analysis and communication, and is composed and decisive. Berger knows what he’s doing.

Klint James McCay, a Sacramento-based administrative law judge for the California Department of Social Services, is well-meaning and gentlemanly. But he’s a clueless blunderer, lacking the talents necessary for the office he seeks."

You can read all their judicial endorsements at the Los Angeles Metropolitan News-Enterprise.

Daily Bruin Endorses Berger for Judge

With just three weeks to Election Day my campaign continues to gain momentum with the exciting announcement that the Editorial Board of the Daily Bruin has endorsed David Berger for as Judge of the Superior Court, Office No. 80.

Explaining why the Daily Bruin endorsed me, they said:

“Yes” on David Berger for Superior Court of Los Angeles County, Office 80

David Berger has actively worked to put individuals through rehabilitation programs throughout his career.

The editorial board endorses Berger both for his dedication to rehabilitation over incarceration and his 24-year history with the district attorney’s office.

As an alternative sentencing designee for the district attorney’s office, Berger facilitated a process that helps people convicted of nonviolent crimes dismiss their cases. In partnership with Community Collaborative Courts, Berger helped develop a process to reintegrate people into their law-abiding lives with dismissed cases.

Klint McKay, Berger’s competitor, also has years of experience under his belt. While also held in high respect, the board finds McKay’s vague campaign priorities do not demonstrate the same dedication to the public interest as Berger’s.

Berger’s vision is clear: He hopes to use his appointment as judge to further rehabilitation efforts.

Los Angeles Times Endorses David Berger for Judge - "The Better Choice"

 In the March 3, 2020 primary election the Los Angeles Times endorsed David Berger for Judge. Much has changed in our world since then and rather than simply repeating their endorsement, the LA Times took the time and trouble to re-examine all the candidates for the November 3, 2020 general election to see which of the candidates are best suited to handling the challenges of our changed world. 

The Times stated that they had made their endorsement of judicial candidates "according to the qualities we deem essential: integrity, intelligence, compassion, knowledge of and respect for the law, and an ability to run a courtroom with a sense of fairness." I am delighted to say that the Times renewed their endorsement of David Berger for Judge.

The LA Times joins the vast majority of individuals, organizations, and civic leaders in concluding that "Berger is the better choice" for Judge of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Office No. 80.
