I'm running to increase access to justice.

The Kitsap County District Court bench is highly respected around the state. Our community has been fortunate to have been served by outstanding judges for many years, and the next judge must be able to maintain and improve on that standard. I look forward to earning your support and sharing my vision for increasing access to justice in our community and carrying on the excellent tradition of the Kitsap County District Court.

Why I'm Running

I’m running for the Kitsap District Court bench to increase access to justice by making our courts easier to use, cheaper to run, and less intimidating for all. In order to make sure everyone receives fair treatment under the law, we must:

Hear All
Litigants Equally

Every litigant has the right to be heard, regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or cultural background.

Elect Someone Well Qualified

With my broad legal experience, I am uniquely qualified to continue the tradition of the Kitsap County District Court.

Ensure All
Feel Welcome

We must ensure historically disadvantaged and marginalized groups feel welcome in our local court.

Respect the Rights of All

The court must respect the rights and interests of all parties involved in legal disputes, including defendants and victims.

Hold People Who Commit Crime Accountable

In the interest of community safety, we must hold people who commit crime accountable.

Embrace Technology

The use of remote court over the last two years has shown how much more efficiently we can handle the day-to-day business of the courts.

Our Community Supports Stan

“I’ve always enjoyed working with Stan, both as a prosecutor and defense attorney. Stan is a true professional. He has my vote!”
