State Supreme Court

Friends and family have asked me who I would recommend for the three Supreme Court positions on the Tuesday's primary ballot. For position 2, I recommend longtime incumbent Susan Owens. She has a proven track record. For positon 8, I support incumbent Steve Gonzalez. He is a former prosecutor and Superior Court judge. For position 9, I highly recommend King County Superior Court Judge Bruce Hilyer. He is rated "extremely well qualified" by the Washington State Association of Prosecuting Attorneys and several other groups who rate judicial candidates. I know him to be a judge of great character and ability.
