(dual endorsement)

"I'm honored to endorse Dorothy for my seat. Her experience as a District Attorney and an Administrative Law Judge makes her the best candidate for the office. She will be a wonderful judge."

— A. James Robertson II, Superior Court Judge, San Francisco County
"I have known Ms. Proudfoot for over 15 years. During that time period I defended a number of cases she prosecuted. I always found Ms. Proudfoot to be an ethical and fair prosecutor. She truly listened to and considered my client’s life circumstances and went out of her way to make sure the just result occurred. Ms. Proudfoot was not afraid to dismiss a case if she felt her evidence was lacking and was brave enough to advocate for alternative dispositions for deserving defendants."

— Charles Davis Dresow, President, Marin County Bar Association; Criminal Defense Attorney
"I had the pleasure of serving on the California Women Lawyers Board of Governors with Dorothy Chou Proudfoot. During the time I've worked with her I have come to appreciate her wisdom, judgment, and above all her adherence to the highest ethical standards in everything she does. Her work advancing gender equity through advocacy and outreach has been inspirational. It is my opinion that she would make an outstanding addition to the judicial bench of San Francisco."

— Sabrina Ashjian, California State Director, The Humane Society of the United States; Public Policy Vice Chair, National Women’s Political Caucus of California
"I survived a violent assault by a career violent felon who was newly released from jail. Ms. Chou Proudfoot volunteered her personal time to help me get through the stressful process of bringing my attacker to justice. Her profound knowledge of the law, coupled with her boundless kindness, compassion and insight allowed me to navigate the difficult and often confusing trial process. She made time, every time, to answer my questions about the next steps, and literally held my hand during the lengthy sentencing hearing. Ms. Proudfoot personifies a rare combination of intelligence, professionalism, wisdom and empathy. She is exactly the type of human who should serve on the Superior Court."

— Laura Ackley, Historian and Author
"I have had the great pleasure of getting to know Dorothy Proudfoot through the Alameda County Bar Association's Mentorship Program, which is just one example of the numerous ways in which Dorothy dedicates her time to serving her community. I am so grateful for Dorothy's measured, thoughtful guidance through the mentorship program. Dorothy brings care and intention to each matter that comes before her and I am confident that she would be an exceptional Superior Court Judge."

— Monica Porter, Staff Attorney, Homebase
