"Would [the] challenger, Deputy Public Defender Kimberly Repecka, be any better? Our answer is “yes.” Definitely, yes. We endorse Repecka as the only worthy candidate in the race."

"Kimberly Repecka is capable and well-regarded. She represented children in dependency court and now works as a deputy public defender.

"This is the first time in more than 30 years that The Times has recommended defeat of an incumbent judge. [Kim's opponent] has shown herself to be unfit and she has been challenged by a better candidate. The Times recommends a vote for Repecka."

"ALL THINGS WESTSIDE - Recently endorsed by the Los Angeles Times, we chatted with judicial hopeful Kimberly Repecka about her candidacy and approach to serving on the bench should she be successful come election day as there will be no runoff in her battle with Emily Theresa Spear."

"Currently a deputy public defender, Kim Repecka also spent one year at the Children’s Law Center representing children in foster care proceedings as well as four years at Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers representing parents and guardians — extremely unusual and valuable qualifications for a judicial candidate."
