Washington Conservation Voters’ vision is that all people in Washington state have a healthy environment and a strong, sustainable economy. WCV works to ensure Washington’s decision makers in both state and local government keep our environment protected, healthy, and vibrant. Over the last 35 years, we have elected environmental champions, held our elected leaders accountable for their actions, and built statewide momentum for environmental campaigns through innovative voter outreach efforts and community organizing.
About this questionnaire: WCV thanks you for taking time out of your busy campaign schedule to complete this questionnaire. Your responses will be an important factor in our endorsement consideration. Your answers to this questionnaire are private and will not be shared publically.
Judges render decisions that have significant impact on environmental policy. We understand that judicial candidates may not make pledges or promises of conduct other than the faithful and impartial performance of the duties of the office. Moreover, we understand that judicial candidates may not make statements that commit or appear to commit the candidate with respect to cases, controversies, or issues that are likely to come before them. However, a judicial candidate's environmental values and commitment to a fair and impartial judiciary are valid considerations in evaluating whether a candidate is qualified. The following questionnaire is designed to provide WCV with an understanding of your judicial philosophy and your personal understanding of environmental land use issues.
