As a former mock trial student of Deborra Garrett, I wish to endorse her for Superior Court Judge.
I met Deborra when I was 15 years old, and Deborra was our volunteer mock trial coach at Meridian High School. With her constructive criticism and passion for the law, she helped our team make it to the state tournament competition. Since she started volunteering at Meridian in 2001, Deborra has educated many, many Meridian students. She showed me and all the other students over the years how important it is not to only understand the law but also to be unbiased, ethical and fair. Deborra was more than just a mock trial coach. She is a life role model for me and many others. I hold her in the utmost respect.
Deborra has a long history representing people in private practice and has volunteered countless hours of community service. She has worked many years in the Superior Court as well as in the federal court system. Deborra has volunteered her time pro bono for the community, acting as legal advisor for the YWCA as well as Womencare Shelter. You will hear from anyone who has ever interacted with Deborra that her poise, intelligence and professionalism earn her the highest respect in any and all situations.
Deborra Garrett is exactly the person we need as the next Whatcom County Superior Court Judge.
