Lawbreaker jay? - You need to calm down a little bit. It is a dumb law that was brought up by a punch of stick up their asses Palo Altans that have nothing better to do but to complain about stupid rules. I say dogs should be off the leash. Have people take more responsibility instead of putting it on one person. NOT ALL DOGS ARE DANGEROUS

I TOTALLY support Jay Boyarsky for Judge. I do not live in the area. I, in fact live in another State. But he handled the case of my son, John Peckham, a cyclist who was killed in Los Altos Hills by an inhumane person on a meth-induced rage. No contest. Guy driving a car under meth and cyclist obeying the rules. The guy KILLED MY ONLY CHILD. My son was a bio-mechanical engineer and a cyclist and a productive member of the community. Boyarsky did the best he could to get justice for my son. Were he the judge, I'm sure the defendant would have gotten the maximum amount of time that the present law in CA provides for. Unfortunately the judge in the case was "lenient" for reasons I can only surmise. So that guy gets another 7 years off the max, even though he killed someone. He killed my innocent only child, and he's let out for another 7 years to kill another innocent victim. However much that judge in question hopes for it to happen, that guy that killed my kid is not going to be "rehabilitated" in prison. It is just not gonna happen. He'll either die in prison because he can't get his dope or he'll get out and when he does he'll "party" and kill another son of another mother. That is life and that is reality. Maybe there are 2% of cases that go against this prediction. And good for those 2%. But my son is dead and I will never see him or talk to him again because some low-life took him out while smoking Meth. But Jay Boyarsky was the one fighting for my son. So I'm for Jay. I only wish I could vote for him.
And, by the way, Lawbreakerjay? Do you hate dogs or do you really just hate Jay Boyarsky? SOUNDS LIKE! Did he maybe give you some time you THINK you shouldn't have gotten? SOUNDS LIKE! Why would anyone choose a moniker (look it up) like "lawbreakerjay?" unless you've had some run in with this particular person? Beats me but I'd love your input! BTW (that means 'by the way' just in case you don't know) allow me, if you will to give you a lesson in the law. A civil offense is different than a criminal offense. And there is something else that's called a "city ordinance." Lots of rules, I know. So difficult to understand. But a dog off leash falls under the heading of City Ordinance which is not a LAW. So Jay Boyarsky was not breakking any LAWS. YOU ARE WRONG. JUST WANT YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE TO KNOW THAT!!!!!

Never been arrested
"Why would anyone choose a moniker (look it up) like "lawbreakerjay?" unless you've had some run in with this particular person?"
Never had a run in with this person, but is there a law against choosing a particular moniker? You will notice I put a question mark at the end of my moniker, therefore I was not calling him a lawbreaker but questioning if he should be considered one. A subtle difference.
"But a dog off leash falls under the heading of City Ordinance which is not a LAW. So Jay Boyarsky was not breaking any LAWS."
Mr Boyarsky apparently considers it a law, as per his quote in the accompanying story:
"I'm not going there as a civil disobedience person or an activist or consciously seeking to break any laws," Boyarsky said.

Thanks for communicating and I have to tell you right now that you are two hours earlier than I am. BUT I would love to know what it is you have against this guy? It seems like a personal vendetta to me. Just curious but Jeeze. He's not a bad guy. Have you ever met him? Or are you a died in the wool Republican? Can we talk?

a law is a law (or an ordinance is an ordinance).for an officer of the court to flout the law and then to say that he is being "responsible" (see link above) demonstrates a lack of good judgement and disqualifies him for higher office, in my eyes. Politics has nothing to do with it.

Boyarsky is an idiot. He's lazy, hardly ever in the office, spent lots of time worrying about his fantasy football team, and basically was paid over $175K/yr by the tax payers to screw around. He hasn't worked an 8 hr day in over 5 yrs. He currently works 6 hrs/day and his hate-crime experience is practically non-existent. He only assists on them when the DA tells him to, which is very little these days. Ask yourself, why would someone with the finger on the pulse of the community be busted down to handling DUI's; because they're not qualified to do anything else.
