After reading the article regarding the specter of bias on the state supreme court (TNT, 8-8), I wondered if you were aware that for Position 6, the only candidate not touting endorsements is Judge Bryan Chushcoff.
While both incumbent Richard Sanders and challenger Charlie Wiggins repeatedly extol their endorsements here, there and everywhere, Chushcoff is the only independent candidate in this race as it is intended to be – apolitical.
Supreme court justices should not be representing the Republican nor the Democrat ideologies. They should be representing the people of Washington.
Chushcoff also is not accepting campaign contributions. Isn’t this newsworthy? What other candidates have established this as a tenet in their campaign? He has served as a Superior Court judge for 14 years in Pierce County and is currently serving as the presiding judge.
