Letter to the Editor: Vote for George Smyrnos

I note that George Smyrnos, candidate for Superior Court Judge, has been endorsed by the Nevada County Deputy Sheriffand#8217;s Association, the Grass Valley Police Officers Association, and the California Narcotic Officers Association. These are the people who respond when you call 911 for help.

The incumbent judge has been endorsed by the local Defense Bar, people who have a vested interest in maximizing favorable treatment by the courts of their clients, many of whom are repeat offenders. Apparently they have succeeded, according to State of California data Nevada County has the lowest rate of referral of convicted felons to State Prison of all 58 California Counties.

The choice is clear, for a safer community vote George Smyrnos for Superior Court Judge.
