I endorse Karl Williams for Judge, Pierce County District Court, Department 8. I graduated from the UW with Karl Williams in 1982 and UPS Law School a year after him in 1987.
In the last 18 years, Judge Pro Tem Williams has presided over many of my cases in Pierce County District Court. His experience, demeanor on the bench and the legal reasoning behind his decisions have always been sound, including those rulings against me.
Judge Williams is and has been a credit to his community, University Place. His election would complement the Pierce County District Court bench well.
