Letter to the editor: Anna Alexander the right candidate for Superior Court judge

Editor:

As a judge and former colleague, I strongly recommend Anna Alexander for Superior Court Judge. I believe Anna is the right candidate because of her integrity and her diverse experience.

I first met Anna Alexander while we were both law students at the University of Washington School of Law, where, at age 19, Anna was the youngest woman ever admitted. We worked often as partners at UW and tried our first cases together to juries. I have had the privilege of observing every aspect of Anna’s career in our local legal community.

A fierce advocate and a talented litigator, Anna has consistently earned the respect of prosecutors, judges, and attorneys. Anna has wide-ranging experience in criminal and civil law, including family law, and she has represented real people in all kids of difficult situations.

While in private practice, Anna has regularly donated her time to represent the most vulnerable, including women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Anna understands the legal problems faced by families in our community and she will ensure that every person, regardless of their socio-economic status, has meaningful access to justice.

Named a “Champion of Public Safety” by our local firefighters, supported by the majority of local mayors, and endorsed by judges at every level of our state courts, Anna Alexander is our best choice for Superior Court Judge. Please join me in voting for Anna Alexander in November.
