Annette G. "Suzie" Sato
- Age:53


This election gives you the opportunity to vote for the best judge to serve all people of Santa Barbara County. I believe it is important for you to know and have confidence in your judges.

I have served as Judge Pro-Tempore in the Lompoc and Santa Maria Superior Courts for over twelve years. I am regularly appointed by our judges to represent children in extremely difficult emotional custody cases.

As a former Deputy District Attorney, I fought for children and family rights. In my 16 years of private practice, I have handled hundreds of Family, Civil, Criminal, Bankruptcy and Estate Planning cases. My experience allows me to bring a complete, diverse and thorough understanding of both criminal and civil law to the bench.

Santa Barbara County deserves the best: judges who are knowledgeable, who will serve this county with the highest degree of integrity, beyond the reach of special interests or political agenda. we need judges who will weigh all the evidence, judge each case on its merits, apply the law equally and who will act with calm, reasoned deliberation.

I am dedicated to be a judge who will be tough, fair and compassionate. I respectfully ask for your vote. Thank you.
