One of the most important elections on the June 7th ballot is the election for superior court judge. As current and retired El Dorado County superior court judges, we see it as our responsibility to encourage voters to support the candidate that has the integrity, has the necessary experience, has the right temperament and values, has established a long-time commitment to El Dorado County, and will be the most prepared to serve as your next superior
court judge. Without question, that candidate is Gary Slossberg.
In November of 2020, the entire El Dorado County judicial bench appointed Gary to serve as your superior court commissioner. What we saw then was his intellect, his proven track record, his judicial demeanor, and his ability to handle the immense workload of the court. Gary surpassed all of our expectations. As commissioner, he handles most of the responsibilities of a superior court judge. Gary effectively manages his courtroom, has handled
nearly every case type in the county, and is decisive in making orders to keep the community safe.
As judges in El Dorado County, we understand the unique needs of the county and what is necessary to be a successful judge here. Gary has demonstrated his long-time commitment to El Dorado County, spending over half of his legal career serving the needs and concerns of the county’s residents. He also has experience serving the entire county, from his time as a practicing attorney in South Lake Tahoe representing victims of domestic violence
and sexual assault to his work as the family law facilitator in Placerville to his current job as the superior court commissioner, in which he has presided over court cases in every courthouse in El Dorado County. He has a thorough understanding of our local court system and the legal issues faced by the residents of the county.
Without hesitation, we support Gary Slossberg for superior court judge. He is the right candidate for this critical role in our county. We encourage you to join us in supporting Gary in the June 7th election.
