Citing his long and varied experience as an attorney, Quan said in a prepared statement that the time is ripe for a change in the judiciary of Imperial County.
“It is time for the residents of Imperial County to decide on their own who should sit as judge in the Superior Court Seat 3,” he said.
Quan’s candidacy has him running against Imperial County Superior Court Judge Diane Altamirano, who was appointed to the bench.
Altamirano, the second woman to be judge in the history of Imperial County, is seeking election to the judgeship. The election is June 5.
A 1989 graduate of Central Union High School, Quan was a double major in political science and economics from the University of California Riverside.
In May 1996 Quan received his juris doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law, Quan said in his statement.
Quan passed the California State Bar Exam that same year and was sworn in as an attorney, he said.
After receiving encouragement from members of the bar, Quan said, he decided to run for the Seat 3 judgment.
“Mr. Quan invites and welcomes all residents of the Imperial County to come out and get to know him better at any of his upcoming campaign events for Seat 3,” the statement read.
