Letter: Record makes it clear Cliff best for Superior Court seat


I support Carolyn Cliff as a Superior Court judge because she is an excellent attorney and judge pro tem who cares about the law and the citizens of Island County. By electing Carolyn Cliff to serve on the bench, our community will greatly benefit from her 30 years experience as an attorney and 20 years experience as a judge pro tem.

As an attorney in Island County, I often represent juveniles. I admire Carolyn Cliff’s ability to communicate effectively with young people who usually are quite stressed and nervous about appearing in court. She always conveys a calm demeanor and a willingness to listen. She takes the time to explain to them the legal process and her decisions in words that they can understand.

Carolyn Cliff’s knowledge and skill as an attorney have enabled her to become a very effective judge pro tem. She knows our community and what resources are available to those appearing before her. Her track record makes it clear she will be a terrific Superior Court judge and she deserves our votes.
