Letter: Support Marshall for judge

Cathy Marshall has spent her career — and her life — helping others. She has worked with the homeless, she has worked to beautify the communities in which she lives; she even helped start a free legal clinic in Port Angeles.

Support Marshall for judge

Cathy Marshall has spent her career — and her life — helping others. She has worked with the homeless, she has worked to beautify the communities in which she lives; she even helped start a free legal clinic in Port Angeles.

Wonderful attributes all, but how does that make her qualified to serve as our newest district court judge?

There are five “must have” qualities any judge should have: (1) Legal ability. Cathy has 21 years of exemplary legal experience in criminal and civil law; (2) Trial or other legal experience. Cathy has appeared in numerous courts and administrative hearings throughout the state in a variety of cases and she has spent nearly six years as an attorney in District Court. She currently protects vulnerable children. (3) A record and reputation for excellent character and integrity. Cathy’s reputation is flawless in the legal community, confirmed by the recent Bar Association poll. (4) Judicial temperament. Cathy has the necessary and important qualities of patience, open-mindedness, courtesy, tact, firmness, understanding, compassion and humility; qualities sorely lacking in her opponent. (5) Devotion to improvement of the quality of justice.

Cathy repeatedly has said she will improve the quality of justice locally, of which we are in desperate need.

Because of her accomplishments, and because of her integrity and sincere commitment, Cathy Marshall will have my vote.
