Audience Appreciates Tea Party Debate With Judge Candidates

The candidates running for an open Judge seat in Nevada County participated in a debate Wednesday night hosted by the Nevada County Tea Party. The five candidates,  Rob Tice-Raskin, Angela Bradrick, Anna Ferguson, Jeff Ingram, and Jeff Lake each provided a three minute opening statement followed by answers to questions, and then a three minute closing statement. The questions, moderated by Tea Party Leader Fran Freedle, included addressing prison realignment issues created by AB109, sentencing for Marijuana Ordinance violators, financial accessibility to court services, and candidate perceptions about what each thought the most important change in the court system could be to improve public safety. Audience members feel the debate was quite informative.
