Please join me in supporting Thomas Bjorgen for Court of Appeals judge. Bjorgen is an outstanding lawyer with impeccable credentials and the best background to serve as an appellate judge. He served as an assistant state attorney general and assistant county prosecuting attorney and [works] in private practice. Bjorgen [also serves] as a hearing examiner for Olympia and Thurston County. He is very intelligent, courteous, fair, and listens attentively to all sides and renders carefully and thoroughly reasoned decisions.
Bjorgen has the highest ethics and is very measured. He is not a politician.
Bjorgen is the type of person we want and need to serve as appellate judge.
