Okoloko is hard working and ethical | Letter

As a recently retired trial attorney after a long career in the Snohomish County public defender’s office, I strongly recommend judge Edirin Okoloko be retained as a Snohomish County Superior Court judge.

Prior to being appointed to the bench by our governor just over a year ago, judge Okoloko was a well-regarded prosecutor for many years, and I litigated many cases against him in that role. I found him to be a highly ethical, hard working and skilled attorney. He brings those very same qualities to the bench and is supported by many of my former colleagues who are familiar with his work as a judge. We need to retain good judges like judge Okoloko. I urge the voters to mark their ballots for judge Edirin Okoloko.
