David Berger for Judge 2018 - Office No 71

This year the Judicial Elections are markedly different from 2016 when there were only 4 open seats (also known as 'Offices'). When the deadline for filing closed this year, there were 10 open seats.

An 'open seat' means a seat where a judge has decided to retire and vacate his or her seat to allow voters to decide on a successor. I had initially chosen Office 126, however, that soon filled up with 3 other candidates. Based on my 2016 experience, I decided to file my candidacy in Office 71 where I will face only one opponent.

This choice means that my campaign will be over on June 5, 2018, as where there are only 2 candidates, the candidate with more than 50% of the vote wins the election. In seats with more than 2 candidates (such as Office 126), the top 2 vote-getters continue campaigning until the November election.

My experience in 2016 tells me that my best chance of winning the election is in Office 71, and that with a little luck, and some hard campaigning, the voters will chose David Berger for Judge on June 5, 2018. I hope you agree and will spread the word to your friends and family: Vote David Berger for Judge, Office No. 71.

David Berger for Judge of the Superior Court Office No. 126

Yesterday I took the first step in the long road to the June 5, 2018 Primary Election for Judge of the Superior Court by filing my Declaration of Intent to run for Office No. 126. 
I will use everything I learned from my 2016 campaign to turn that experience into a roadmap for success and a seat on the Los Angeles Superior Court. 
I am so very grateful for the supportive comments many of you sent to me in response to my announcement a couple of days ago, and I am hopeful that you will help me maintain that momentum by sharing this news with your friends and family, adding whatever words you feel appropriate to convince them to support my candidacy in the election.

Berger for Judge 2018

After much thought and I am pleased to say, much encouragement, I have decided to run again for Judge of the Superior Court. 

My 2016 campaign seems like a distant memory now, but it is worth remembering that I won the endorsement of the Los Angeles Times and the Metropolitan News-Enterprise, as well as many Judges, Lawyers, and Law Enforcement associations. When the final votes were counted, 1.3M voters chose me, and I lost by the smallest of margins - a mere 4%. 

With that in mind I believe 2018 is my year to fulfill my dream and continue my career in public service in the best way possible; as Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court.

I hope you will all again support me, and please share this news with your friends and family. 

The Primary Election will be on June 5, 2018, and I will be posting news here and on my Campaign Facebook Page in the weeks to come.
