Judge Steven Bailey is running for California Attorney General
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Voters will decide on California’s next Attorney General in the November election. Judge Steven Bailey discussed his campaign against Xavier Becerra on Good Morning San Diego.
Information on Judge Steven Bailey from his website can be read below:
Judge Steven Bailey (Ret.) is the only candidate with a background and expertise in criminal law. He was an elected Superior Court Judge in El Dorado County for 8½ years, where he had assignments in criminal, civil, probate, and juvenile cases and served 4 years as the Presiding Juvenile Judge.
Prior to the bench, he was in private practice handling criminal and administrative law for 19 years and was a Certified Criminal Law Specialist, certified by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. He was also Deputy Director in charge of Legislation for the California Department of Social Services under the late Governor George Deukmejian.
Judge Bailey is calling on Californians of all political persuasions to unite in support of his campaign to bring a fair and impartial approach to the Attorney General’s office and refocus the state’s top law enforcement position on reducing crime. “California needs an Attorney General focused on solving our problems, not fighting Washington D.C.”
Judge Bailey has been endorsed by the California Republican Party, the NRA, Gun Owners of California, Crime Victims United, and even the Los Angeles Police Protective League which represents nearly 10,000 officers of the LAPD.
Judge Steven Bailey (Ret.) believes in the death penalty and will enforce the will of the people of this state. Our voters have spoken time and time again that they support this law, a law reserved for the worst of the worst. Justice must prevail.
Judge Bailey took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the State of California and the Constitution of the United States. While others may have forgotten that sacred oath, Judge Bailey is committed to uphold all the laws of California and the United States.
Judge Bailey strongly supports “Three Strikes.” This law ensures that habitual criminals are behind bars and not in our neighborhoods where they threaten our families, neighbors and our law enforcement. Some have proven that they cannot live with us and must spend their time behind bars.
Drug and Property Crimes
Judge Bailey believes that the voters were lied to by the politicians in Sacramento. They told us that reducing drug and property crimes would make our streets and schools safer. They lied. Property crimes in our neighborhoods have skyrocketed but worse yet, drug addiction has resulted in the needless deaths of hundreds if not thousands of our children. Judge Bailey will fight to change the law and protect our homes, property and our children.
Judge Bailey believes releasing hardened offenders early from their sentences is a threat to your safety and to the safety of your friends and neighbors. It sends the wrong message—California is not serious about punishing the criminal for the crimes they commit.
Judge Bailey agrees with President Ronald Reagan that it would not serve any good purpose at all to disarm honest citizens and leave them at the mercy of criminals, who by definition do not follow our laws.
