Dear Fellow Yakima County Bar Member,
We are writing to announce Jeff Swan as our choice for Yakima County Superior Court Judge - Position 3. All of us who are privileged to practice law in our valley need to support leaders that reflect our professional values.
We believe Jeff is the ideal candidate needed at this time. Jeff is a highly qualified professional with a stellar reputation for his integrity, legal analysis, and work ethic. His trial skills are outstanding and well known. He will be the responsible and steady fixture we need in our local judiciary.
Appearing almost daily in our Superior Court over the last 25 years, Jeff works tirelessly and with a passion as a public defender. Jeff knows the strengths and challenges that are unique to our courts. He is rated by the Washington Women Lawyers and the Washington Veterans Bar Association as Exceptionally Well Qualified and Well Qualified, respectively. There is no substitute for his experience and institutional knowledge.
Jeff has also made an impact in service to our community. He volunteers mentoring youth with Boy Scouts of America and YMCA Mock Trial. Jeff strives to improve the lives of others as a board member of Yakima Valley Partners Habitat for Humanity and a member of Yakima Rotary Club.
Jeff has a vision for the future of our courts. For example, he wants to expand therapeutic courts and implement a Veteran's Court to address the unique needs of those who served to protect our freedom.
Clearly, we are very impressed and excited that Jeff is running for Superior Court Judge. Should this become a contested election, we know his likely opponent has been well funded in the past. While Jeff is willing to make the responsible financial sacrifice to run, he needs our help to strengthen the campaign.
