Judge White-Brown to Run, but Will Retire Soon


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gloria White-Brown, who is up for reelection this year, has confirmed that she will retire at some point after the time for a challenger to perfect his or her candidacy.

If she files a declaration of candidacy, then files a nominating petition, and no one enters the race for her seat, Office No. 152, Gov. Gavin Newsom will choose her successor.

Deputy District Attorney Keith Koyano on Tuesday took out petitions to gain signatures in lieu of a filing fee, indicating his plan to run for Office No. 152. While he had been told, accurately, that White-Brown planned to retire this year, he had been unaware that she nonetheless planned to pursue her candidacy, and declared he would not target an incumbent.

White-Brown told the METNEWS late Wednesday:

I do plan on retiring sooner rather than later. I have not yet made a decision on the actual date. I will retire after the time of a candidacy may be perfected.
