Statement: My name is Chris Herion, and I am asking Kittitas County residents to elect me as their next Superior Court Judge, Position 1. I aim to provide Kittitas County the same level of professional legal service I have worked to provide as a county criminal deputy prosecutor and, in my private capacity, as a Special Assistant Attorney General. My education, professional experience, and military training and service are testament to my broad based background and ability to fairly and impartially hear the important cases that come before our court. My wife and I choose to raise our four children in Kittitas County because we can think of no better place to call “home.” My name is Chris Herion, and I am asking for your vote. Thank you.
