Supports Joe Wilson for Superior Court Judge
August 28, 2008 · Updated 4:32 PM
I filled out most of my ballot and there they are the Superior Court Judge candidates. Unlike the elections gone by it won't be a clueless decision. I'm ready.
This time it will be different. This time I am prepared. This time I have seen and heard each of the major candidates for Superior Court Judge Position 6 and I can tell you now that it does make a difference and it is critically essential that we elect the right person.
Each of them will present brochures and pamphlets describing how wonderful they are. However, until you see them in person and listen to their story, it's the same old packaging that goes around each election cycle.
Of the three candidates, one presented an impressive account of his experiences with such sincerity and just enough humility that you are convinced that he will perform his job with unbiased equality and justice. You will see, as I do, that his past service to our community reveals a set of values that anyone would be proud to call his own.
He has not chosen the easy road in order to pad his resumé but has done the difficult but desperately needed community work, such as being a long-time board member and past president of the Snohomish County Center for Battered Women and presently is serving on a committee to provide comprehensive services to abused children.
He is frequently appointed by the court in cases involving minors in need of protection. There is much more than I can mention.
Never-the-less, when you compare his pamphlet with the other candidates, just remember that I've seen and heard him in person along with the others and the pamphlet doesn't mean much by itself. If you get a chance, meet up with each of them, see for yourself and you will know what I mean.
And then you will have to agree how could anyone vote for anyone but Joe Wilson to be our Superior Court Judge?
