I have a new feature on my blog where I ask elected officials, staff members, and activists questions. Some of the questions will be quirky but they are designed for my readers to better know our local politicians.
Bob Huber is the Mayor of Simi Valley. I have talked to him a few times during the campaign on mostly policy issues, like supporting the Arroyo Greenway Plan, but I don't know much about him personally.
Mayor Bob Huber:
What motivated you to become a lawyer? What types of law have you practiced over your career? Who is your favorite fictional lawyer.
You can post your answer on this entry or email it to me.
Here are Mayor Bob Huber's answers:
Happy Father's Day! I hope you have a great day with your family!
Here's the answer to your questions:
#1. After 13 years as a Mortician I decided to help others in need from another direction. What drew me to the law was the opportunity to solve different types of problems for people everyday.
#2. Over the years I have practiced criminal law (both as a Deputy District Attorney and a criminal defense attorney); Family Law; Business Law; Homeowner's Association Law; Personal Injury Law; and General Civil Litigation. My current specialties are Personal Injury and Civil Litigation. I have been a Ventura County Court Judge Pro Tem since 1981 and served as a Mental Health Judge from 1988 to 1998.
#3. My favorite fictional lawyer is Atticus Finch from the movie "To Kill a Mockingbird".
Thanks for participating in this new series of blog posts where I ask brief questions.
