Our judicial system is a cornerstone of our democracy, and thus the important role of judges cannot be overstated. I have known Carolyn Cliff for more than two decades and know she will make an excellent Superior Court judge for Island County.
I first met Cliff when she needed an estate planner for a complex situation she was handling for a client. Through that experience and subsequent ones, I have seen firsthand the qualities Cliff will offer as a judge: She does her homework and is always prepared — but is smart enough to know when she needs an expert. She is straightforward, personable and very caring — an attribute not always seen in a litigator but one that endears her to her clients. She approaches situations and people in a fair, unbiased manner. I am confident her judicial decisions will be based on the law, not her personal biases.
Carolyn Cliff is the right choice for Island County Superior Court Judge No. 2.
