Joe Campagna, candidate for
Shoreline District Court Judge
Shoreline resident Joe Campagna has filed for election to an open seat on the Shoreline District Court bench. Joe has been campaigning for the position since last December and has a campaign website with a list of more than 45 area judges and many local elected officials who have endorsed his candidacy.

Among his supporters are retiring Rep. Ruth Kagi, Rep. Cindy Ryu, Sen. Maralyn Chase, and Shoreline City Council Members Doris McConnell, Keith Scully, and Susan Chang. Mayor David Baker and Deputy Mayor Nigel Herbig of Kenmore are also supporting Campagna’s election to the Court. His website shows that he has been rated “exceptionally well qualified” for a position on the District Court bench by five independent Bar Associations.

Joe is currently a trial lawyer with the Seattle law firm Schroeter Goldmark and Bender and has tried criminal cases in both state and federal courts and also serves as a Judge Pro Tem in the King County District Courts and Lake Forest Park Municipal Court. He serves as a board member for Washington Appleseed, an organization that mobilizes volunteer attorneys to level the playing field for Washington’s vulnerable and marginalized populations. Joe is also a Shoreline Rotary member.

In talking about his campaign, Joe said, “I believe I have the right experience to be a great judge for our community -- and the drive and energy to work on making our court system more fair and efficient for everyone. I know the things our district courts are doing well, and I know where we need to improve. If I have the privilege of serving the people as a King County District Court Judge, I promise to work hard to make our court the best it can possibly be — more open to the public, more fair to those who can’t afford an attorney, and more efficient in the way we handle the taxpayers’ money.”

Joe lives in the North City neighborhood with his wife Margaretta, and their two children, Mira and David.
