No Recall 2018 -
Judge Aaron Persky
Top 5 Reasons to Vote NO RECALL:
Firing (or recalling) a judge for applying the law threatens the independence of our judiciary branch. It sends a message that judges must immediately do what a well-funded campaign or a vocal group wants them to do rather than what is called for under the law. VOTE NO RECALL.
Judges apply the law, they do not create it. This recall seeks to fire a judge for doing his job according to his discretion. VOTE NO RECALL.
- The recall will deepen injustice against poor people and people of color because judges will be pressured to be harsher with everyone. Without a judge’s discretion, we are left with “one-size-fits-all” justice in a system that has never favored poor people or people of color. VOTE NO RECALL.
- Firing one judge will not solve complex problems in our society. We need greater protections for survivors that challenge outdated laws, eliminate unethical legal practices, and empower survivors with more resources and support. VOTE NO RECALL.
The California Commission on Judicial Performance thoroughly evaluated the charges against Judge Persky made by the million-dollar recall campaign mounted against him. The Commission found them to be wrong and recognized that he is a judge who follows the law. VOTE NO RECALL.
