Letters to the Editor

Offering enthusiastic support for Wiggins |Letters | Aug. 6

Bainbridge Island attorney Charlie Wiggins is on your primary ballot for State Supreme Court Justice. I would vote for him in a heartbeat! I worked with him on a local project and have never before or since experienced a person with more ideas, energy, and follow-through. Charlie is also smart, ethical, personable and down to earth.

– A vote for Charlie is a vote for experience. He is a 30-year practicing attorney specializing in cases before the courts of appeal, former State Appeals Court judge and judge pro-tem.

– A vote for him is a vote for integrity. He is a champion of impartiality and fairness in the courts.

In 2008, he represented 27 former Supreme Court justices from 19 different states in an amicus brief regarding judicial impartiality to the United States Supreme Court. His point of view prevailed.

– A vote for Charlie is a vote for competence. He has been given the highest possible rating of “Exceptionally Well Qualified” by the King and Pierce County Bar Associations; “Outstanding” by the King County Municipal League; endorsed by newspapers and organizations around the state.

– A vote for him is a vote for a person who is in touch with the people. Charlie was awarded the Kitsap Bar Association’s Humanitarian Award for his work with Habitat For Humanity. He is a U.S. Army veteran and involved community participant.

Join me in voting for Charlie Wiggins for Position 6, Washington Supreme Court.
