Letters to the Editor

Committed to the full term

I read Virginia Amato's Auburn Reporter announcement of candidacy for King County District Court Judge, Southeast Division, Position 5, wherein it stated the current judge, Richard Bathum, was retiring and endorsing her.

Now it appears that Judge Bathum may not retire as he, too, has filed paperwork with the PDC.

While I respect whatever decision he may ultimately make, I am unequivocally certain I want to be elected King County District Court judge. Further, I can assure voters that if elected, I will strive to serve my entire term. My commitment to my King County constituents is unwavering.

– John M. Torres Jr.
