Larsen for Supreme Court

The Times recommends Dave Larson for state Supreme Court Position 6


By The Seattle Times Editorial Board

Voters should welcome the chance to add new voices to the court and elect Dave Larson over incumbent state Supreme Court Justice Charlie Wiggins.

Larson has the trial, bench and civic experience to be a strong justice. He is the presiding judge of Federal Way Municipal Court -- comparable experience to Chief Justice Barbara Madsen, who was a Seattle Municipal Court judge when she ran for Supreme Court.
