Coletta, Cole, Take Out Papers to Run for Judgeships

Cole Files Her Declaration of Intent


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Alfred Coletta and former Los Angeles Deputy City Attorney Onica Cole yesterday became the first candidates to take out declarations of intent to run for Los Angeles Superior Court open seats, with Cole returning hers the same day.

Coletta is seeking Office No. 4, being vacated by Judge Roy Paul, and Cole is running for Office No. 67, now held by Judge Donna Goldstein.

Judge Mark G. Nelson Sr. has also indicated he will not run this year to succeed himself, and Judge William G. Willet, who has been in ill health, is not expected to run.

Declarations of intent must be filed by Feb. 7 except that, where an incumbent who is up for election this year does not file, the period is extended by five days.
