This year, the Broward County Hispanic Bar Association introduced its Judiciary Committee Initiative. The Judiciary Committee is tasked with the responsibility of educating and informing membership and the community about candidates running for judicial office, in an effort to maintain the high quality of our judiciary. Members of the Committee spent hours compiling a comprehensive questionnaire, researching and interviewing the judicial candidates, publishing information gathered from the process to its membership and community, and organizing a judicial forum focused on involving not just the legal community, but the entire Broward Community. Community engagement and education is a necessary part of the election process, and as a Voluntary Bar Association, there is no higher duty than to assist in this public education. Because of the Judiciary Committee’s diligent efforts, now the Broward Community has a voice they can turn to for completely unbiased information regarding candidates running for judicial office.
The Judiciary Committee Initiative is a completely voluntary process. All candidates running for judicial office, including judges running for reelection, were invited to participate and sent a questionnaire. Below are the questionnaire responses we received from the candidates and judges who elected to participate in this important process.
