Endorse Judge Okoloko

I came to this country more than 20 years ago from my native Nigeria, and I have devoted my entire legal career to serving the community that has welcomed me as an American citizen and provided a great place for my wife Lara and I to raise our two children.

As a Snohomish County Deputy Prosecutor and later as a Superior Court Judge, I have worked hard to serve my community and our justice system with diligence, integrity, and compassion in all my work. I take my role in the courtroom seriously, and I treat everyone respectfully.

Since beginning my service as a Snohomish County Superior Court Judge in 2018, there have been many changes in the important work that we do – most necessitated by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. My colleagues and I remain committed to making the changes necessary to keep the community safe while protecting important constitutional rights.

I am fortunate that I will be reelected unopposed in 2024 to serve another 4 years on the Snohomish County Superior Court. Your support of my candidacy has always been truly humbling, and I remain sincerely grateful. I am glad that I can focus on serving our community as a fair, upright, and impartial judge and continue the work to improve the services of the Court and make our system of justice more accessible and equitable to everyone.
