Tom Anderson’s campaign sent around this email:
Truckee—Today the Contractors Association of Truckee-Tahoe PAC (CATT PAC) announced its endorsement of Presiding Judge Tom Anderson for re-election to Nevada County Superior Court. CATT PAC stressed that the key factor in its decision was Judge Anderson’s depth of experience and his intimate familiarity with Nevada County’s court system.
“The responsibilities of a Superior Court Judge go far beyond ruling on criminal matters,” CATT PAC President Mike Rodarte said. “Our county courts handle civil issues like business disputes, probate issues, and family law on a daily basis. They also include alternative courts where the role of a judge goes far beyond merely handing down sentences.”
“Judge Tom Anderson is the only candidate with experience in these areas of the law,” Rodarte continued. “He impressed us as the kind of knowledgable and experienced leader Nevada County needs on the bench.”
Judge Anderson was first elected as a Nevada County Superior Court Judge in 2006, and has served as Presiding Judge in Nevada County since being elected by his peers on the bench in 2010. He has presided over both civil and felony criminal court. He is a supporter of Nevada County’s alternative courts, and has presided over Adult Drug Court, Dependency Drug Court, and Mental Health Court.
With this endorsement, CATT PAC adds its support to a list that includes current and former Nevada County Supervisors, active and retired law enforcement and public safety professionals, sitting and retired Nevada County judges, California Court of Appeals Justices J. Anthony Kline and Bill Newsom (ret.), and Superior Court Judges from twelve Northern California rural counties.
CATT PAC raises industry and public awareness in order to support political candidates, initiatives, measures, and campaigns that support the best interests of the building industry in the Truckee-Tahoe region.
