Stracener mailers show his true character

By From page A5 | October 31, 2012


Hypocrisy? At a forum I attended, Judge Warren Stracener spoke compassionately about the kids he encounters in juvenile court. But last spring and again this week he mailed campaign flyers that proudly displayed his family photo on one side and recklessly smeared his opponent on the other.

How does Mr. Stracener explain to his daughter that it’s OK to degrade someone before thousands of people? How might his opponent’s kids feel if forced to defend their dad at school?

I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in politics, either. Mr. Stracener was appointed to our bench by Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose ethics and morals are unquestionably poor.

Joe Hoffman is by far the better choice for judge. Ask yourself why so many judges and members of our district attorney’s office think so. And ask parents like me about Joe’s incredible dedication over many years to coaching youth sports and teaching our children the right lessons.

The choice is clear. Please vote for Joe Hoffman on Nov. 6.

    Hoffman is the wrong choice for judge. The " Good ol' Boys" of the county are his supporters and are trying to make a comeback to their old corrupt tricks and position rigging. Hoffman's association with one jailed accused thief is all people need to know, Go to the Bee for details, Court records reveal Hoffman wrote a letter for Daniel Chartraw, former EDH resident, and stated the guy had a large amount of "Dory Bars" in his possession, it seems investors depended on that letter as a reason to invest, they lost their money and Chartraw fled to Mexico. Court records document that investors deposited money in an account controlled by Chartraw through Hoffman's law office that was set up as a client "trust." acct. Hoffman has not explained any of this to my knowledge. This was all very unethical at the minimum, in my opinion, if not fraud. This county doesn't need any more Good Ol' Boys or candidates with a cloud over them in elected office.
