Bonnie B. Price Ph.D Endorses Tim Nader

"I have learned that California Deputy Attorney General Tim Nader is running for judge in San Diego County in 2018. He has many attributes that commend him as worthy of this position. A native of Chula Vista, Tim has a long career in public service, both as an attorney and elected official. So, I am writing to share information about him with you, so you may consider him as a candidate during the primary and general elections this year. Since all county voters may cast their ballot in this race, you are eligible to vote for Tim Nader.

Tim has one Democratic opponent, in addition to the Republican incumbent, Judge Kreep.
Tim grew up in Chula Vista, California, where his dad taught in the Chula Vista elementary schools for 25 years. Tim attended local schools and churches, graduating from Hilltop High school in 1975. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, magna cum laude, then, from Boalt Law School at the same university. Tim returned home to Chula Vista after graduating from law school.

While working as a prosecutor in the California Department of Justice, Attorney General's Office, he was elected to the Chula Vista City Council in 1986; he was re-elected in 1987. He then was elected Mayor in 1991. During his time in city office, Tim championed public safety and youth programs. After losing narrowly in a special election for the state assembly, Tim became an adjunct professor and spent several years working in affordable housing development and services for domestic violence victims.
After 9/11/2001, Tim volunteered in a foreign aid program in Turkmenistan, formerly part of the Soviet Union in Central Asia. On returning home, Tim worked as a child support attorney for six years before rejoining the CA Department of Justice in 2008. He currently serves as a deputy attorney general in the local office.

Tim won a seat on the Southwestern Community College District Board in 2010, on which he still serves. He has served as board president for two terms. A strong supporter of the U.S. Constitution, Tim was appalled when the past college administration received national attention as a violator of the First Amendment rights of teachers and students. In addition, the college was put on probationary status by the regional accrediting agency. There were also criminal activities conducted by college officials that brought notoriety to the college district. Needless to say, Tim and other trustees remedied these issues, in collaboration with law enforcement and the accrediting agency.

As a former mayor of Chula Vista and a long-time resident of the community, Tim values the importance of Southwestern College to the educational opportunity of thousands of South Bay students and to the economy of the region. He served a second term as president of the board, until recently, which is why he has not been seen on the campaign trail much. He is now campaigning as much as possible to win the primary and general elections in 2018. He still has his day job, so he's working every night and weekends to compensate for that.
(The above information about Tim was partially taken from past Smart Voter guides posted by candidates and published by the League of Women Voters, as well as biographical information on Tim's website. (For more information about Tim's service check his website: )

As you have probably surmised by now, I support Tim Nader for judge and ask you to support him as well.

If you wish to join me in supporting Tim, please share this email with others.
People often do not know much about judicial candidates, so they need information, as evidenced by the election of the incumbent.

I thank you for doing all that you can do to ensure that the best candidates serve in the offices, which they seek.
