I will be voting for Judge Dave Grant for Whatcom County Superior Court.
Judge Dave Grant is endorsed by almost all Whatcom County mayors and police chiefs. It would appear they think he balances criminal justice with compassion, and this would make Whatcom County and Bellingham a safer place to live.
In contrast, Dave Grant's opponent seems to have had a long and successful career in labor law. Is this what is needed for Superior Court? I don't think so.
Mr. Grant's opponent appears to report most of her campaign funds coming from Seattle and King County. Why would out-of-county supporters go against local law enforcement and mayors? What kind of values might outsiders want to impose on you and me?
Do we really need a labor-relations lawyer who will likely be on a huge learning curve, or a ready to run, highly respected judge for this position. You decide!
