About this race

The race between incumbent Judge Randy Brandt and challenger Aimee Mauer is one between experience or change. Brandt stresses his experience in law and as a judge. A political ad mailed from his campaign quotes County Prosecutor Steve Tucker saying the county is a “better place to live” with Brandt on the bench. But Mauer argues that District Court has been stagnant and notes that Brandt is the court’s presiding judge. She points to the “Blueprint for Reform” from the Spokane Regional Criminal Justice Commission, which suggested that the court was unwilling to make changes to bring efficiency to the justice system.
