Re-elect Justice Charlie Wiggins | Letter

As a former King County Superior Court judge, I urge you to re-elect Justice Charlie Wiggins to the Washington state Supreme Court, Position 6.

Throughout his career, Justice Wiggins has been committed to judicial integrity. I had the privilege to see this firsthand when working with Wiggins on the American Judicature Society, an organization devoted to the improvement of the quality and independence of judges.

Justice Wiggins has been endorsed by over 200 current and retired judges, 25 members of the State Legislature, elected prosecutors across the state and many other community leaders. He received the highest possible judicial rating from the King County Bar Association and Washington Women Lawyers, among others.

This broad support reflects the recognized experience he brought to the Supreme Court for the past six years. In addition to hearing over 500 cases on the Supreme Court, Wiggins argued hundreds of cases in front of the Court as an appellate lawyer. This appellate experience involved him in diverse, complex legal issues, allowing him to develop an in depth understanding of the law that sets the standard in this race. Join me and hundreds of judges, elected officials, community leaders and individuals across the State in voting for Justice Wiggins this November.
