Vote for the right judges, don't get us stuck with right-wing lunatics!

Urgent message from Citizens to Uphold the Constitution: (forwarded to us by Sol Riou - thanks, Sol!)

Anti-consumer special interests have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars convincing voters to back their hand picked candidates for our State Supreme Court.

We must get the word out that our courts are under attack -- and provide as many voters as possible with the information they need to make good choices in the upcoming judicial races. Many of these races will be decided on the September 19th primary election.

STATE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE POSITION #2
Re-Elect Supreme Court Justice Susan Owens

JUSTICE SUSAN OWENS has more than 25 years experience as a judge, with a strong record of protecting Constitutional rights. She is endorsed by former Governor Gary Locke, WA State Democrats, WA State Labor Council, Sierra Club and more than 100 judges, and rated "Exceptionally Well Qualified" by Washington Women Lawyers.

STATE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE POSITION #8
Re-Elect Supreme Court Justice Gerry Alexander

JUSTICE GERRY ALEXANDER is the longest serving Chief Justice in our state’s history, with more than 30 years experience at all court levels. He has earned a lifetime achievement award from the Ninth Circuit for his character and integrity. The King County Bar Association has rated him “Exceptionally Well Qualified.”

STATE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE POSITION #9
Re-Elect Supreme Court Justice Tom Chambers

JUSTICE TOM CHAMBERS has six years of experience as a Supreme Court Justice and practiced law for 30 years.
