Education: Seattle University School of Law graduate; University of Washington, Bachelor of Arts; Ingraham High School

Statement:
Commissioner Les Ponomarchuk is uniquely qualified for Shoreline District Court Judge because of his experience, integrity, and record of accomplishment as a judicial officer. Born and raised in north King County, Les is a proud and involved member of our local community.

For the past 20 years, Les has served with distinction as a Superior Court Commissioner. In fact, Les was the first criminal law Commissioner in King County. On the Bench, Les has presided over more than 80,000 cases in virtually every area of the law handling heavy, critical caseloads. Commissioner Ponomarchukís record of judicial experience, while ensuring access to justice, is simply unmatched by his opponent in this important election.

Throughout his career, Les has earned an excellent reputation on the Bench for his fairness, objectivity, and dedication to the law in court and in the community. And, thatís precisely why so many judges, commissioners, and community leaders are supporting Les Ponomarchuk.

As our next Shoreline District Court Judge, we can count on Les to bring a new, vigorous, and balanced approach to the Court. Les Ponomarchuk is the experienced choice - the best choice - for Shoreline District Court. We humbly ask for your vote. Thank you.
