Edmonds Municipal judge running for spot on South District Court

Edmonds Municipal Court Judge Douglas J. Fair has filed to run for the position on the South District Court now held by Judge Carol A. McRae, who has not filed for re-election.

Fair won re-election to a four-year term as part-time municipal-court judge in November 2013.

He said Friday that he is running for the new position because a place on the District Court would give him professional and personal growth.

“The South District position is full-time, has a wider variety of cases (civil, small claims and protection orders), and will provide new and interesting challenges.”

He said that McRae and every other municipal, district and superior court judge in Snohomish County has endorsed him.

As of Thursday afternoon, Fair had no opponent.

South District Court Judge Jeffrey Goodwin has an opponent in his run for re-election to a four-year term. He’s Brett Nagle of Mill Creek.

Judge Beth A. Fraser has no opponent for the position that she holds by appointment.
