LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Wernette's experience and integrity is an asset


I support Richard Wernette for the nonpartisan position of Superior Court judge. Citizens residing in Walla Walla County have always been fortunate to have excellent candidates step forward and be willing to serve impartially and objectively as Superior Court judges. In my opinion, Richard will continue this legacy.

Richard is an excellent candidate with a broad background that will allow him to start the first day with experience and tenure. My comments are supported by the following facts:

  • Nine years as a Municipal Court judge
  • Seven years Superior Court commissioner
  • Twenty-one years District Court judge pro tem
  • Twenty-six years criminal and family law private practice

Richard has been involved in many community and civic activities. He has the right judicial experience to be successful. However, he also has other qualities that I admire-integrity, common sense, judicial temperament and the most important qualities is his ability to be fair, impartial and practical.

I believe Richard when he says he is committed to a safer community. Join me in electing Richard Wernette as our next Superior Court judge in Walla Walla County.
