Judge Clay Brennan has officially announced his candidacy for re-election as Superior Court Judge. First elected by the people of Mendocino County in 2006, Judge Brennan has heard thousands of cases from the bench in Fort Bragg, earning the trust and respect of the coastal Mendocino County community he serves.

“Today, I am announcing my candidacy for re-election as Superior Court Judge,” Judge Brennan stated. “Over the past 17 years, it has been my privilege to serve the people of Mendocino County by ensuring that our legal system remains fair and just for all. I am committed to continuing this mission, promoting transparency, and upholding equal justice for every member of our community.”

Judge Brennan’s intent to run for countywide re-election has already drawn considerable support from his fellow Superior Court Judges. A website published yesterday (www.ReElectJudgeBrennan.com) lists support from current Mendocino County Superior Court Presiding Judge Jeanine Nadel, Ann Morrman, Cindee Mayfield, Patrick Pekin, Victoria Shanahan, and Carly Dolan, as well as retired Judges Eric Labowitz, Jon Lehan, James Luther, David Nelson, and David Reimenschnieder.

“We’re fortunate to have such a compassionate and fair-minded judge serving our county,“ says former Mendocino County Supervisor Carre Brown, who also endorses Brennan. “Judge Brennan’s commitment to equality and his tireless service are remarkable. He has always been a tremendous fit for Mendocino County.”

Since 2011, Judge Brennan has presided over the Ten Mile Courthouse in Fort Bragg, providing coastal residents with the ability to resolve disputes within the community. His calm and respectful temperament on the Fort Bragg bench has earned the support of community members on the coast and throughout Mendocino County.

“We support Judge Clay Brennan for re-election as a Judge of the Mendocino County Superior Court,” said Jim and Diane Larson.“Judge Brennan is fair and just to all who appear before him, and he runs his courtroom with palpable respect, both for the community and the rule of law.”

According to Brennan’s campaign, the list of more than 200 endorsers featured on the website is only the first step in what promises to be a robust re-election effort.

“At the end of the day, it’s been the honor of my life to serve Mendocino County and the Ten Mile Court with a commitment to equality and respect,” said Brennan. “I’m more than willing to outwork anybody to make sure I can continue that mission.”
