Program Synopsis

Guest speaker and candidate for relection, Municipal Court Judge Position No. 2 Kimi Kondo, gave us a real understanding of how the Municipal Court works and her function as the Preciding Judge overseeing a $27.8 million budget, and her particular interest and work in the Mental Health Therapeutic Court for the last year and a half.  She also talked briefly of the limitations of the King County Bar Association’s ratings.  She was very well received and left with a big hint that WSDW will be endorsing her in the future.

Want Even More Information?

Go to the King County Bar Associations 2014 report for more information on how the ratings are compiled.  See  http://www.kcba.org/judicial/surveys/2014/2014_kcba_judicial_officer_survey_report.pdf

  1. How great to see myself with our great congressmember. After watching all the hullaballoo about the all male profit making football team being honored by our president it is wonderful to know that women are rising in politics and making a difference in a world sometimes gone mad.
