Judicial Appointment Bar Poll

Thurston County Bar Association Judicial Appointments Bar Poll

The Thurston County Bar Association is releasing the results from a recent Judicial Appointments Bar Poll. The purpose of this poll is to express the preference of our members for the next judicial appointment to the Thurston County Superior Court.

Pursuant to our By-laws, four attorneys requested to be included in our poll as they were interested in receiving the appointment to the Thurston County Superior Court position that will be vacated by the Honorable Lisa Sutton on September 30, 2014.

Ballots were mailed to our membership which totals 350 attorneys. In response, we received 168 valid ballots.

The results are as follows and have been sent to the Governor’s Office for review.
