State Supreme Court Election Special

Friday, September 15 "Money is gushing into this year's Washington State Supreme Court contests. Why? Who's backing whom? We'll take a close look at the issues and ask whether these nonpartisan races are becoming too politicized. We also meet the candidates for position 2. How will you decide? Is there a better way to select judges?"

Guests:

  • Judge Susan Owens was elected to serve on the Washington State Supreme Court in 2000, after serving nineteen years as District Court Judge in Western Clallam County.
  • Stephen Johnson represents the 47th legislative district (Kent, Auburn and surrounding areas). He is the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee of the state Senate.
  • Michael Johnson is a Seattle-based attorney who specializes in guardianships for the developmentally disabled and in elder law. He says "campaign contributions and endorsements are a corrupting influence in elections" and that he "will not accept money nor seek or use endorsements."
  • Norman Ericson is a judicial member of the Washington State Bar Association who has served over 31 years as a state Administrative Review Judge. He currently serves as the Chief Administrative Review Judge for the Washington State Employment Security.
  • Erin Shannon works with the Building Industry Association of Washington.
