ENDORSED BY SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY PROSECUTORS
"San Bernardino County Prosecutors Endorse Judge Arthur Harrison"
"Long-time and well regarded Judge Arthur Harrison has the full support and endorsement of San Bernardino County Prosecutors."
"The Prosecutors want judges on the bench who are good for the community, who will listen to both sides, who will give fair hearings, and who will hold criminals accountable for their crimes. Judge Harrison meets and exceeds those criterion. It is with no reservation that Judge Harrison has our endorsement, and we encourage San Bernardino County voters to join us and reelect Judge Harrison!"

DEDICATED TO THE PURSUIT OF JUSTICE
Judge Harrison has served the San Bernardino County residents for 17 years as a superior court judge (much of that time as a supervising superior court judge), presiding over cases ranging from juvenile dependency, criminal, and family law matters. Prior to that, he was a prosecuting attorney for 14 years with the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office, handling cases ranging from misdemeanors to death penalty cases. He came to the D.A.'s Office after over 10 years as a peace officer with the San Bernardino Marshal's Office (which has now merged with the Sheriff's Department).
BEST QUALIFIED FOR THE POSITION
Judge Harrison has the support and backing of over 50 San Bernardino County judges and commissioners, in addition to prosecuting attorneys and peace officers within the county. His years of experience, combined with his lifelong dedication to the San Bernardino community, make him the only logical choice for this seat.
HE IS ENDORSED BY THE NATIONAL LATINO PEACE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION ADVOCACY GROUP
As stated in the endorsement from this group, "The NLPOA-Advocacy support Art Harrison for Superior Court Judge because he has demonstrated the highest ideals of Honor, Integrity and Truth." You can see the rest of this letter of endorsement above, and can see more letters of endorsement on the Endorsement Letters page, showing some of the many groups endorsing his candidacy.
JUDGE HARRISON'S GRANDPARENTS WERE MOVED WESTWARD FROM THEIR HOME ON THE CHOCTAW, INDIAN NATION RESERVATION, OKLAHOMA
Judge Harrison grew up hearing horror stories from his family of the prejudice and scorn with which the American Indians had been treated, and he has a strong sense of justice and dignity which he affords to all people, regardless of race, religious, gender, or other background.
YOUR VOTE MATTERS
Voters often tend to wonder what qualifications they should look for in certain candidates on the ballot, and they may even wonder if their vote is important or not.
In choosing a candidate for judge, the background and experience of the individual running is very important. Technically, anyone who has been an attorney for ten years may run for the Office of Superior Court Judge. The role of a judge is a complex one, however, and requires good judgment, a good demeanor, good moral character, and the experience to apply the law in a manner that it upholds the will of the People, while creating a fair forum for all persons having their matters heard before the Court.
The more experience a judge has, both before taking the bench, and after, the better the likelihood that that judge will be able to grasp the issues coming before the Court.
Judge Harrison meets these qualifications and has served well in his capacity as Judge of the Superior Court now for 17 years. If you are unsure who to vote for, look to the people who do know - the other judges and the people in the local law enforcement/legal community, to see who they choose. Their choice to support Judge Harrison is a good indicator that he is the best candidate for the job.
