This month marks the start of one judicial career and the recognition of the longevity of two others.
Newly appointed Superior Court Judge Bill Houser, who was selected by Gov. Jay Inlsee to replace Steve Dixon, will be sworn into office Monday, March 31, at 3 p.m. in the County Commissioner’s chambers.
Houser will not have much time to get acquainted with his new job before standing for election in the fall.
Then on Thursday, March 27, the Washington State Association for Justice will honor two long-serving Kitsap judges for their 20 years of service, Superior Court Judge Jay Roof and Poulsbo Municipal Court Judge Jeffrey Tolman.
The event will be held at McCormick Woods Golf and Country Club in Port Orchard from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
