The Yard Signs are Coming!

Yard signs. Love 'em or loathe 'em, no campaign is complete without them, and thanks to the generosity of my supporters, my campaign will have them in 2018 - just as we did in 2016.

Nobody really knows how effective yards are in campaigns. Some say they do nothing at all. Others opine that they simply reassure existing supporters that they're backing a winner, while others suggest they increase name recognition. Who knows who is right?

We have retained a trusted company to responsibly distribute our signs, and more importantly, remove them after the election so they don't create a trash problem. Love 'em or loathe 'em, the yard signs are back!

The Hon. Judge Stephanie Saunter Endorses David Berger for Judge

Good things happen when you least expect it. By sheer chance I met Judge Stephanie Saunter (ret) while she was sitting on assignment  at the Airport Courthouse. We struck up a conversation and I was delighted to hear that not only was she aware of my candidacy, but she wholeheartedly endorsed it.

Judge Saunter is something of a legend and trailblazer at the Airport Courthouse where she was the Presiding Judge before her retirement in 2013. Judge Saunter was a NYPD Detective before ‘going west’ and studying law at Whittier College of Law. She passed the bar and her first job was working as a researcher for “People’s Court” a popular tv show where she worked with Harvey Levin, a Professor at Whittier. Yes, the Harvey Levin of TMZ fame. In 1984, she was hired as a Deputy City Attorney and headed the Slum Housing Taskforce where she attracted national media attention by requiring a Beverly Hills doctor to live in one of his slums. In 1992, she ran for election as judge, motivated in part by the fact that one of her opponents had opposed enforcement of slumlord probation conditions, and in part by then Governor Pete Wilson’s veto of anti-sexual orienation discrimination  legislation. Judge Saunter’s election victory made her the county’s first openly lesbian judge.

I value Judge Saunter’s endorsement highly and am immensely proud to have received it. To read more about Judge Saunter’s career, please CLICK HERE to read the article published by the Metropolitan News-Enterprise on her retirement.
