Meet the Candidate: Justice Mary Yu

Irene Basloe Saraf, Board President

Justice Mary Yu was appointed to the Washington Supreme Court in 2014, elected to complete that term in 2015, and is now running for a full six-year term. She brought deep skills and experience as a jurist to the Court; she served as a King County trial court judge for 14 years. She also represents important milestones for the Court: she is the first Asian-American, first woman of color and first member of the LGBTQ community to serve as a Supreme Court Justice.
