As far as working, I’ve been on the bench since 1986. I have been happy being a judge, that’s why I am still on the bench. My experience on the bench has gone from starting in the municipal court, then going to Superior Court, working with dependents, juvenile dependency, they are the abused, neglected, molested, very sad cases in terms of being part of our system of dependency, foster care. Then I asked to do delinquency, because that’s one of the reasons I wanted to become a Superior Court judge, was in order to work with at-risk youth.
