OAKHURST – Carol Moses, candidate for Madera County Superior Court Judge Seat #2, will host a meet and greet reception on Wednesday, Mar. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Yosemite Wine Tails, 40409 Highway 41 in Oakhurst. The public is invited and refreshments will be served.
Ms. Moses, a former Yosemite National Park ranger, will share information about herself, her campaign and two youth projects with which she is involved.
Moses chairs the Law Day Yosemite event, which will be held May 4th this year in Yosemite. Last Friday she co-chaired Open Doors, a session that brings high school students from around the area into federal courts to be jurors on a mock criminal trial, which is presided over by a federal judge. After the students reach a verdict, they discuss with the judge and their teachers, how they reached their verdict.
Moses has been an attorney for 25 years with much of her work in federal court. She regularly appears in courthouses in Madera, Mariposa and Fresno counties as well as in Yosemite National Park. Her name appears on the June 5th ballot for Seat #2, currently held by The Honorable Charles Wieland, who is retiring this summer.
Judge Wieland has endorsed Ms. Moses, as have retired Madera County Sheriff John Anderson, the Madera County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association and the Madera Police Officers’ Association.
