Johnson has the experience

I am writing to endorse Patrick Johnson for the Spokane County District Court judge position. I have known Patrick since I was a deputy prosecutor in Spokane County 16 years ago and know that he will make a good judge for District Court.

His employment for 20 years as a deputy prosecutor has given him a good practical basis for the judgeship position. He has work experience at all levels of criminal trials and procedure and has worked in all the divisions of the court system.

Beyond the work experience, he has the personal attributes necessary to the bench. He is patient, polite and capable and is not prone to anger and frustration. He is honest and hard-working and conducts himself honorably and with high moral standards.

The citizens of Spokane County should elect Patrick Johnson. They will not be disappointed by his performance. He will serve them well in all the ways the people have a right to expect from those who are elected to be judges.
