Thank you for your interest in my campaign for Everett Municipal Court judge. Having grown up in Everett — and now raising my own two sons here — I understand what makes this a great place to live and work.

But I also understand that like any changing city, Everett has challenges that need to be addressed in a meaningful way to keep all our families safe. Having spent my entire legal career working in Snohomish County’s justice system, I am committed to creating a balance between traditional models of punishment and accountability and the more recent therapeutic alternatives. The Everett Municipal Court, under the leadership of Judge Laura Van Slyck, has moved to the forefront of Washington’s courts by creating new approaches to break the continuous cycle of criminal activity. I look forward to working with Judge Van Slyck and the many other committed professionals in our justice system. You can learn more about my background, my family, and my commitment to Everett here.

Between now and November, I will be spending as much time as possible in the neighborhoods of this great city listening to the ideas and concerns of the people of Everett. I hope to earn your trust and your vote.

Amy Kaestner
