Here are Letters to the Editor for Oct. 13, 2016
Re-elect Pat Monasmith
Please join me in voting to re-elect Pat Monasmith for Superior Court Judge in Stevens County. As the Program Manager for Stevens County CASA, I have been in Judge Monasmith’s courtroom too many times to count over the years as we advocate for the best interests of children in foster care. I have watched him rule over many difficult and heart-wrenching dependency cases and he has done so with fairness and compassion. Most importantly, Judge Monasmith is a champion for the children of Stevens County, always working to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are cared for and protected. It is critical that we have judges who are knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate while also being fiercely independent and calm under pressure. I know Pat Monasmith to be all of the above and I enthusiastically endorse him for re-election of Superior Court Judge. I know he will keep our children safe.

Vote for Jessica Taylor
I know Jessica Taylor. I like her. I respect her. She is smart, capable, and conservative. Jessica is currently a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Stevens County. She has judicial experience as a former Stevens County Superior Court and District Court Commissioner and Judge Pro tem.
Jessica has also worked as an attorney in private practice and is an honorably discharged U.S. Air Force veteran.
Jessica Taylor is endorsed by community and justice system leaders, such as: State Senator Brian Dansel; Superior Court Judges Patrick Monasmith (position one) and Rebecca Baker (retired); Prosecutors Tim Rasmussen (Stevens) and Kathryn Burke (Ferry); Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen; five current and former County Commissioners; and, many others.
Jessica Taylor’s opponent is a fine gentleman who has practiced family and civil law for many years. However, Jessica’s judicial and criminal law experience sets her apart as the candidate who is best prepared to be our next Superior Court Judge. I would like to congratulate Jessica Taylor and Mr. Williams for running clean and respectful campaigns.
I was honored to serve as a Stevens County Commissioner for eight years. I retired eight years ago, but I still feel the same sense of loyalty to my constituents and the citizens of the 7th Legislative District. I believe Jessica is exactly the candidate we need on the bench for Superior Court Judge. Please join me in voting Jessica Taylor for Superior Court Judge, Position Two, by marking Jessica (Taylor) Reeves on your ballot. Thank you.
Former Stevens County Commissioner,
Thank you Democrats and President Obama
Thank you for letting criminals out of prison. We know they will not commit more crimes. Thank you for letting the illegals come into our country freely from our southern border. Maybe we can get them registered to vote before the national election. Thank you for letting boys in the girls locker room and the girls in the boys locker room. Also accommodating any sodomite to come and go and use what ever bathroom they want. Thank you for letting women kill their babies before they are born. Thank you for prosecuting police officers who are innocent. Thank you for persecuting Christians. Thank you for accepting barbarism in the form of Islam. Thank you for over taxing the hard working Americans. Thank you for cuddling the lazy.
