We encourage voters to re-elect Pierce County Superior Court Judge Kathryn Nelson.

Nelson has served as a Superior Court judge for 12 years. We have appeared in front of her on family law, criminal and civil matters during her tenure as judge. Her intelligence, hard work and dedication to the law make her an ideal judge and one who has contributed much to the public and the legal community.

Nelson has demonstrated fair and unbiased decision-making. She is prepared for every case, even when she has to review volumes of materials. She is respectful to all litigants, including attorneys and individuals representing themselves. Further, she is not afraid to make difficult rulings.

During her time as judge, Nelson has presided over the Pierce County Superior Court Criminal, Family Court and Juvenile Court divisions of the court. She has served on numerous committees and is a member of the American Inns of Court. She works as a volunteer for various community activities, including Rotary Club, Paint Tacoma Beautiful, Tacoma Lutheran Retirement Community Foundation and has been president of her church board.

Retain a hard-working dedicated public servant and vote to keep Nelson in Department 13, Pierce County Superior Court.
