A Message From Mary
Hello and thank you for visiting my campaign website.
I was appointed to the state Supreme Court on May 1, 2014 after serving as a King County trial court judge for over 14 years. I was subsequently elected to a two year term and I am now running for a full term in 2016. While on the trial court, I presided over a wide range of civil and criminal cases and hundreds of family law matters. The most important values for me as a trial judge were to treat everyone with respect and fairness, to approach each case with an open mind, to decide cases impartially and to understand that every decision I made impacted the lives of real people. As a Supreme Court Justice, I continue to hold those same values.
I am proud to be the daughter of immigrants and the first in my family to attend college. I am also honored to be the first Asian, the first woman of color, and the first member of the LGBT community to serve on the Supreme Court.
Please join the many others, including hundreds of current and former judges, civic leaders, community organizations, and elected leaders across the state who have lent their support to my campaign so that I might continue to serve you as a Justice on the Supreme Court.
Thank you for your support!
