I hoped voters would elect a judge who have some ties to their local community. Mr. Irby was elected due to endorsements from judges in northern California and because he was hired as a commissioner in February 2017 by the judge he went to law school with, the presiding judge of the court.
People stop and tell me they voted for me. Some ask about our faith and Sikh Americans in the area and that's building goodwill. I will look forward to assisting others seeking elected office and am looking for new opportunities to serve.
