Keep Justice Wiggins on the Supreme Court | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Our current Washington State Supreme Court has done a superb job of upholding our state constitution and laws.

At a time when courts are both accused of, and persuaded to, “make law,” our court has remained steadfast in interpreting the law as it is written and adjudicating accordingly.

Nowhere is this more apparent than the McCleary case. Three justices are up for re-election, and all three should remain on the court and continue to withstand the enormous political pressure placed upon this branch of our government. To inform yourself, log on to the award-winning votingforjudges.org page.

Specifically, read the qualifications, endorsements and record of Justice Charles Wiggins.

Consider Justice Wiggins’ career. For 25 years his appellate cases were in all areas of the law. Why turn Justice Wiggins out only to elect a municipal court judge who has had no jurisdiction over felony crimes or over most of the civil cases considered by the Washington State Supreme Court such as divorce, child custody, real property disputes, administrative, significant money claims, etc.? A vote for the opponent makes no sense. When it comes to the judiciary, qualifications and experience count. Vote for the best. Vote for Justice Charlie Wiggins.
