Letters to the Editor

My vote is going to Jennifer Forbes | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

I’m endorsing Jennifer Forbes for Superior Court judge in the August election.

While all the candidates claim knowledge of the law and passion for justice, Jennifer’s life has been a testament to tenacity of purpose, that is, taking life’s adversities and repurposing them to ignite a desire to serve others through the law.

Her experience and energy resonate in the courtroom as pro tem and in the community, such as her leadership at Red Cross. She has and continues to serve her peers as President of the Kitsap Bar Association. Community members in social services and police and fire departments support her election.

My choice was confirmed when I was at the Rolling Bay courthouse, touring with new staff and saw Jennifer in action, assisting a community member with a protection order.

Jennifer is exceptionally caring, exceptionally competent and she balances tenacity with compassion.

Jennifer Forbes is the right choice for me; she is the right choice for you and Kitsap County.
