Supervisor Nelson Confirms Desire to Become Judge

There’s been a lot of speculation lately about Supervisor Shawn Nelson wanting to be a judge.

Those plans are real after all, he confirmed last week.

In an interview with Voice of OC, Nelson said he plans to apply and/or run for a judicial seat at the end of his term as supervisor.

“I hope that I will be a judge at some point and that will be the end of me,” Nelson said when asked if he would be returning to his law firm, Rizio & Nelson.

The interview centered on Nelson’s income from the firm, which has been paying him over $100,000 per year while he serves as supervisor.

Nelson’s term as the Fourth District supervisor is slated to end in early 2019.
