"When I moved to Walla Walla over 2 years ago, Jared Hawkins was one of the first people I met, through our association at church. As I watched him function in his leadership role there, it quickly became apparent to me that he was a man of kindness, of empathy, and of the highest level of integrity. His service to not only myself and my family, but to an entire congregation, was exemplary and inspiring, often at the expense, I imagine, of his own free time. I can think of no one in the Walla Walla area who I feel better embodies the characteristics that should be held by any judge...fairness, understanding, patience, and again, empathy and integrity. Without reservation, I enthusiastically endorse Jared Hawkins for Part-Time District Court Judge. His appointment would be of great benefit to the entire Walla Walla community and its residents."
