Trusted by People You Trust: Shane Seaman’s endorsers

The work of a District Court Judge and Municipal Court Judge in court is something I have been doing part-time for a long time –by being an appointed Court Commissioner for the City of Bremerton and by doing a job they call Judge Pro-Tem for the Kitsap County District Court. We join the bench when the elected judges you voted for have to take leave for health, vacation, training or other personal reasons. It keeps me hopping every week with a regular calendar of sitting on the bench, in addition to my civil practice.

"Treating everyone with respect and equal access to justice is what we should expect from our judges. This is how Shane Seaman – candidate for District Court Judge (Position 3 – the seat Judge Marilyn Paja is retiring from) will approach serving our community.

As someone with experience on the bench, he has the background to do right by Kitsap residents. He’s my choice and I urge your support as well."

— Rob Gelder, Kitsap County Commissioner, District 1.
“Shane has been a pro-tem with Poulsbo Municipal Court for over 10 years and has always shown extreme respect for not only the staff but for the judicial system as a whole. Shane is knowledgeable, dependable and respected by all that have worked with, appeared before or interacted with him on the bench.”

— Amy Knutsen, Court Administrator, Poulsbo Municipal Court
“Shane is one of the most balanced individuals I have ever seen on the bench. Willing to be kind and understanding yet firm when it’s necessary. I have seen Shane take extra time with individuals who are struggling and make a priceless difference in their life.”

— Ian Coen, Bremerton Municipal Court Probation Officer
“In 2006 when I was first elected District Court Judge in Jefferson County I asked Shane to be a ProTem judge for me. I needed someone reliable with the knowledge, skill and integrity to substitute for me when I could not be there. Shane proved to be that person and served with distinction for several years. I can think of no better person to serve the people of Kitsap County as their new District Court Judge.”

— Jill Landes, Jefferson County District Court Judge (ret.)
