The best candidate for AG by far and away is Joel Hansen. He's an excellent and successful lawyer, ethical, principled, and he cannot be bought. But he'll never get elected.

I'm only posting on candidates I have had personal experience with:

VOTE for -
District Court
Davidson or Wiese - Davidson (Jerry is a PI attorney with not enough experience; Davidson - whether you like him or not - has put in the time and has both civil and criminal experience. He can be a tad dickish but who can't? Jerry also was having financial troubles a few months ago (resolved I believe) but I think he is tired of running the law business - NOT a good reason to run for judge).

Family Court
Jones or Maskall - JONES (he is, in fact, a decent judge despite some personal issues)

Eccles or Gonzalez - GONZALEZ (he has been working diligently to improve some of the issues subject of the judicial evaluations)

Ochoa or Wallace - OCHOA (has also put in his time, is fair and patient - a must in family court)

Nathan or Piazza - PIAZZA (Nathan is Halverson II - she is notoriously rude and unpleasant to deal with which would be fine if she were some sort of legal wonk. She is not. She is ill-prepared, violates evidentiary rules routinely, will not extend common professional courtesies and is just a flat out shit. If she gets on the bench, she will be IMPOSSIBLE).

Justice of the Peace
Abbatangelo or Marshall - Abbatangelo (yes, even with the DV conviction)

Kephart or Kuzemka- KUZEMKA (a better choice between the two - Kephart has too many issues and is not that smart)
Bennett or Kurth - BENNETT
Baucum or Gubler - Baucum (even if a little chillY0
Hafen or Zadrowsk - ZADROWSKI (I have extensive experience with Hafen, unless you are just like him, forget it - very subject to politics)

District Attorney
Roger or Chairez - CHAIREZ (Roger needs to go not that Chairez will win but Roger needs to be counting his blessings if he stays)

Attorney General
Masto or Barrick or Hafter or Hansen - MASTO (although this means nothing will really ever change over there and, man, does that office need a management overhaul)

As to the DA race specifically, I have but a single comment.

Uuuuhhh... Nut job.

Anonymous said...

Regarding the DA Race Remember:

North Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Stephen Dahl said 20 percent of people arrested for felonies and gross misdemeanors in his city go unpunished for want of a deputy district attorney. “We dismiss a lot of cases,” he said, and there is a price to pay. This fiscal year, 2,625 felony arrestees were charged in North Las Vegas. Dahl said 539 were dismissed. Most of them, he said, were dismissed “pursuant to statute,” meaning the state failed to meet deadlines, such as holding a plea hearing for a detained person within 72 hours, or a probable cause review within 48 hours. Dahl recounted the case of Nahshun Lomax, 35, who shot to death 31-year-old Tamequa Williams and then himself in late April after he was released from jail on a domestic violence charge. “He had already been in prison and had other violent cases pending, but the case was dismissed,” said Dahl, “because no charges were filed. That weekend he killed her and then himself.” http://lvlegalnews.com/courts/2905.html Why is the RJ trying so hard to cover for known corruption on the part of Sheriff Gillespie and District Attorney David Roger??? I suspect the public is figuring out that these two have concealed the truth about many cover-ups, i.e. Trevon Cole and Eric Scott. This editorial is desperate and transparent.

Anonymous said...

The following comment was posted in a site for attorneys in Nevada: www.watchdogwag.com

District Attorney: Republican David Roger—sneaky, petty, little, vindictive, paranoid—is perhaps the worst District Attorney in America who I think is owned and operated by organized crime who hold his personal life as a Sword of Damocles over him.
The proof for me is that he’s never done a credible job fighting organized crime…ever!
But, he has no problem waddling his fat ass over to the courtroom when there’s a black defendant he can capitalize on and his racism is posited in his appalling record of not hiring black people.
He does have one Uncle Tom sellout on his team, 4th-rate, lousy DDA Terry Johnson whom everyone detests, to do his dirty work like firing people; everyone hates David Roger and hates working for him.
I did vote for Chairez because David Roger is too corrupted and owned to be an effective DA.

Anonymous said...

SHERIFF AND DA

David is as corrupt as they come. Crime is not down as his commercial states, and the only reason he can state that he wins cases he prosecutes is because he is the king of plea deals. David rarely litigates, unless it is politically advantageous to him, i.e. O.J. Simpson. And then there is all the deals made to those who have contributed generously to his campaign(s), i.e. Paris Hilton, Strip clubs, convicted felons, i.e. Galardi and Rizzolo, and the attorneys who represent them. Follow the money. Ask yourself if David Roger felt O.J. Simpson was important enough for him to litigate personally, why not the recent Eric Scott inquest. David was HIDING, and allowing the Sheriff to dodge those bullets. Now we have a new cover-up in play with the traffic accident involving a metro cop. Metro deliberately misrepresents the truth to the press, stating the teen hit the police cruiser. Not true. Why lie? No sirens or lights? Speeding? The driver came to a complete stop. Was the cop texting? The big question now is why did David Roger not insist that the highway patrol investigate an accident involving Metro. No, our D.A. sends Metro to investigate Metro, and they lie, in hopes no one will notice. Like Mann? Both Gillespie and Roger need to GO.

ZADROWSKI AND ROGER: PARTNERS I CRIME

of Justice For Sale: Recently, District Attorney Candidate Don Chairez ran a commercial illustrating how justice within our District Attorney's office is dependent on the amount of money contributed to DA Daivd Roger's campaign, in particular David Chesnoff and Associates (520 S. 4TH ST.). The amount $10,000 from David Chesnoff is conservative as it does not take into account the monies donated through Mrs. Chesnoff and Chesnoff Assocites. To the informed eye, the amount is closer to $50,000. The same situation is true for David Roger's partner in crime Bernie Zadrowski, Dept 14. While most attorney contribute approx. $250.00 the Chesnoff Associates contributions are almost $10,000. Is justice for sale? You betcha. With Bernie and David justice is also dependent on political favors. SNIPPET of Bernie's 2010 Campaign Report David Chesnoff $2000 1-22-10 520 So. 4th St Richard Schonfeld $2000 1-22-10 520 So. 4th St. David Brown $1000 1-22-10 9804 Highridge Dr. Residence Luis J Rojas $250 2-22-10 520 So. 4th St Joseph Momot $500 4-13-10 520 So. 4th St John Momot $2000 4-14-10 520 So. 4th St Michael Sfant $500 5-27-10 520 So. 4th St And what's up with the hundreds of thousands donated to David Roger from strip clubs? Does anyone remember what happened with the Galardi plea deal??? RUMOR HAS IT DAVID ROGER MADE A HOUSE CALL TO THE HOME OF DAVID CHESNOFF (ATTORNEY FOR PARIS HILTON) WHILE SHE WAS GETTING HER HAIR DONE, IN ORDER TO NEGOTIATE THE PLEA DEAL.

@ 1:55 etc. aka Don Chairez. The Galardi case was in federal court. Dave and the D.A."s office were not involved.

I am not Don Charez. You would be surprised to learn who I am though.

As far as Galardi goes. The bottom line is that Roger testified that he returned the 20,000 he received from Galardi. Not according to his campaign reports.

When is it appropriate for our DA to accept donations from convicted felons i.e. Rizzolo?

Have you looked at the numbers on David's reports. Big money from 1. Strip Clubs; 2. Taxi Companies; 3. Developers???

Whether the last few posts were from the same source is not the issue. Perhaps one should focus on the factual information provided.

No. I have no political aspirations, but have seen much from both sides over many years.

Only wish the political favors to end and an even playing field be afforded all.

Roger will never be an effective DA as he is "owned".

Zadrowski is an egomaniac nut job who would throw his mother under the bus to be a judge.

Your vote for District Attorney should not be about who you believe will win, but rather an opportunity to send a clear message. I believe that race is much closer than many predicted.

Anonymous said...

Almost all who know David Roger hate him with a passion. In particular, the people who work for him in the DA's Office. From DDA's down to clerks and such. Everyone hates him.

With Terry Johnson as his hatchet man the entire office now hates the admin side.

Chris Lally would make a fine DA but he has no political ideas.

Anonymous said...

I'm not sure why Zadrowski keeps getting vilified. He and Roger do not get along. Zadrowski sits in a basement Siberia because of some bad blood between the two that goes back to a prior campaign.

That said, look at the opposing candidate. Conrad Hafen is part of the "Hafen" family, long time LDS Nevada residents. His politics are far right. While that may not bother some, consider that he is also the sole member of the AG's Public Integrity Unit. The AG's office is better suited to being a regulatory agency, not a prosecutorial office. Why? For years, Hafen has carried water for various AGs. Deals are routinely brokered to drop cases (particularly under Chanos' regime). Did Hafen, the Public Intergrity Officer, step up and stop that? No.

If he can't stand up to corruption and back room deals in his own office, as the Public Integrity Officer, how will he manage as a judge subject to contributions?

Moreover, several years back, a DA investigator was charged with pressuring sex from victims while serving subpoenas. That DA investigator was brought up on charges (a white guy). The AG's office was given the prosecution of the matter as a conflict. Hafen met with all of the victims in the case, all of whom happened to be African American females. Strangely, after meeting with the victim witnesses, the case was dropped. Apparently, the victim witnesses were no longer cooperative. You don't have to dig far to find dirt on this one. KNOW YOUR CANDIDATES.

Gale or Sturman--Gale is an idiot and Sturman is good old girl old school liberal. Poor choice
Alf or Beckstead--Alf is a loser and so is Beckstead. Hobson's choice.
Howard or Israel--Howard is old school Vegas and Israel is an ambulance chaser. Catch 22
Pollock or Scann--Pollock never practiced family law and used family court as a stepping stone. Scann is old school and pushes the female agenda. Pollock by a hair.
Davidson or Wiese--Two losers. Wiese will be worse.
Dabney or Kishner--Dabney has experience but Kishner works for some out of town employment group. Dabney.
Bare or Stoebling--Bare has no real attorney experience and Stoebling does. Stoebling.

Jones or Maskall--Jones. Maskall is a total loser.
Eccles or Gonzalez--Bad choices here. Gonzalez by a hair.
Ochoa or Wallace--Probably Ochoa. Had cases with him. Will develop "robitis". Good lawyer though.
Nathan or Piazza--Piazza a PI flunky who is too old and having financial troubles. Nathan will not be Halverson. She has practiced law. Would you believe she had a bypass and is still a "cow." Nathan clear choice.

Abbatangelo or Marshall--Abbatangelo. Handled himself well during the inquest. Marshall was a scorched earth litigator and not suited for the bench.
Kephart or Kuzemka--PD Kuzemka hates men. Kephart is full of himself. Kephart by a hair.
Bennett or Kurth--Kurth, Bennett is worst JP to ever have held the job.
Baucum or Gubler--Baucum, nice appearance never practiced law. Don't know why Gubler wants the job because hie is PERSEd out.

Hafen or Zadrowski--Both decent lawyers. Bernie because he won't be a Mormon hard ass like Conrad.

Rogers, Kephart and Zadrowski are all cut from the same cloth. All assfaces to deal with. Bernie doesn't care at all about the people he prosecutes. They lose their homes trying to pay off debt to the casinos who beat these poor tourists out of hundreds of thousands of dollars and send them packing with nothing but the shirts on their backs. They act like its real money that gets lost in the casinos, when in reality, the casinos are out NOTHING when a player takes a marker out and loses it IN THE VERY CASINO THAT GAVE THEM THE CREDIT! And when hard times fall on the poor sap who was plied with liquor and turned upside down to get his last nickels by the big casino bosses, Zadrowski steps in to take food from their babies mouths. Andi if they don't pay?? Prison! Rogers and Zadrowski go home every night slappin each other on the back and grinnin. What a racket. The casinos, Zadrowski, and Roger need to be prosecuted for theft. No votes for any prosecutors from me, and I urge you to do the same.

Perhaps we could use a bit more diversity on the bench. I look at this list and I see very few minorities. Ochoa, Gonzalez and Bennett, that's it. One African American, one Hispanic, in a city with a large minority population, all we can come up with is this in terms of racial diversity? Pitiful.

You should really get to know the candidates before you write such idiotic statements.
Benett, Gonzalez, and Ochoa are 3, not 2. Don't forget Charez and Cortez. That's 5. Plus, I see Jewish men and women, Italians, Slavs, and Hispanics. Did I leave any out? I might add that many years ago I served with Bernie Zadrowski when he was the president of the Hispanic/Latin Bar Association. I remember Michael Villani attended those meetings regularly as well. In this day and age you can't tell much from just the name. And of course, one candidate is even openly gay. Lack of diversity? I don't think so.

Most of the long detailed posts were made by Democratic maverick activist Mike Zahara; they're pretty much lifted verbatim from his website. I like Mike, he's a pain in the neck to his own party. Not much of a dresser though.

SuperCoolChick said...

Can't vote for Kishner. Don't know her or have anything negative to add re her qualifications. But here goes:

A campaign mailer I received from her within the last week included the standard "happy family" photo of Kishner, hubby, kids and dog. In caption, dog was described as her "adopted" dog. Really? As opposed to her other, biological dogs?

Presumably one of the qualifications for this position is presumably the ability to effectively communicate. She cannot even adequately describe her dog in a campaign mailer! If she cannot even state in a presumably well-planned piece that her dog came from a shelter vs. a breeder/mill (was that so hard?) [and therefore a friend to the animals] how will she do that from the bench?

Or maybe I'm being unfair and her personal life is more interesting than the norm. I'm not down with that. I'd apologize for being a prude but not even Dan Savage is down with that!

10/20-8:16 p.m.--Comment critical of victims' rights. If you were ever a former Deputy DA, you would know that the "victim-witness" is the most important person in the prosecution. Rogers' office has done a lousy job looking at for the victims of crimes. I assisted a "victim" who was being threatened and stalked by the very person who robbed him at a gas station. The DAs office is so incompetent, has too many cases, and so overworked. They do a lousy job protecting the public from the street thugs that terrorize us. This is why something needs to be done. In the case that I just mentioned, if it not were for my legal intervention getting the DA to have this defendant's release conditions revoked, something bad could have happened. Luckily the defendant is now sitting in prison.
Otherwise, the victim would not pursue prosectuion and the thug would have continued on robbing and possibly hurting someone. Never give your home address if you are a VICTIM of a crime.

First of all everyone will now blame you for starting me off on a wardrobe tangent. I hope you can live with the burden and the guilt.

I have for many years now, encouraged professionals to distinguish between business suits and cocktail suits. For business suits I always wear a button down, pinpoint oxford cloth shirt, with a breast pocket and beveled barrel cuffs. This projects a visual image that communicates professionalism, competence and a general sense of gravitas. For cocktail suits I wear a 120's or 140's broadcloth shirt, with a plain collar, French cuffs and a French Front placket. The goal here is to communicate elegance and social ease.

26 - Gloria Sturman - Sturman is genuine and truly interested in the law. Gale rubs me the wrong way, but I'm sure he's a nice guy. People know her name and she deserves the seat. she has 20 years of experience in this type of work and she will be great.
27 - Nancy Allf - Now Nancy is a truly nice lady. She gave me the run down on her stances and she plans on running a full time court room with respect for the constitution.
28 - Jack Howard - He has experience doing many types of law and a lot more of it than his opponent. I don't think Ron Israel would be a bad choice, but my vote goes to Howard.
29 - Susan Scann - She has trial experience and high ratings, as well as previous judicial experience. Her opponent has only a 47% in the judicial survey for retention recommendation. Scann is a caring woman who loves the law.
30 - Jerry Weise - I've gone back and forth on this one, but after it came out that he has predetermined views and biases as soon as he sees the parties, I can't vote for that. Met Jerry Weise and he is a nice guy. Davidson has a lot more experience, but I see him as not viewing all the evidence before rendering a decision.
31 - Joanna Kishner -
32 - Rob Bare - I just love Rob Bare. He and Steve Jones really impressed me at the Sun City meet and greet with their knowledge and sense of humor. Bare has done everything right in his carreer and was actually a short term judge at one point. Everyone loves him and I think he''l make a great full-time judge.

Family Court:
C - Maria Maskall - Family law experience, many awards as a pro bono lawyer (you have to really love family law to do it pro bono) and Steve Jones has so many issues, complaints and investigations, there just isn't enough enough room to list them. He is well liked and a really nice guy, but it seriously took me several pages of negative information to find god things about him.
F - John Eccles - A really nice guy and friend, almost exclusively family law practice since law school, pro tem hearing master, opponent appointed by governor with NO family law experience
S - Vincent Ochoa - Have heard great things about him, he has more experience as a lawyer and 4 different jobs as hearing master or arbitrator in Clark County.
His opponent has stated that she has
T - Carl Piazza - Nathan has been tagged as a man hater and I just can't hanlde that. Carl is a genuinely nice guy and a good lawyer.

I love the comments that Gayle Nathan is a "man hater." Typical comment from a man who learned the hard way that Nevada is a community property state. Sorry dude, you can't keep everything. So to salvage your pride when you had to share $ with the ex, you call a woman attorney a "man hater." No wonder you are divorced.

How many years did Gonzales practice family law before he was appointed as a Family Court Judge?
