In the race for Pierce County District Court position 2, voters have the opportunity to elect an outstanding candidate, Claire Sussman. Ms. Sussman is the only candidate to receive the rating of exceptionally well qualified by the Tacoma/Pierce County Bar Association as well as the News Tribune endorsement.
I have worked with Ms. Sussman as a fellow deputy prosecutor and also observed the excellent work she has done as a pro tem Judge in District Court. She is a person of utmost integrity and intelligence. She has earned the respect of prosecutors, judges and defense attorneys alike because of her commitment to justice. The breadth of her experience as a former deputy prosecutor and long time pro tem Judge make her the clear choice for this position.
