CJE Treasurer Mark Garka congratulates new Judges Beth Fraser (l) and Melanie Dane (r), both CJE members.

Long-time CJE member and Snohomish County Public Defender Elizabeth “Beth” Fraser was recently appointed to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Snohomish County Judge Timothy Ryan. As a tireless advocate for justice, Beth has long been highly regarded by her peers in Snohomish County and clearly the County Council agreed.

Judge Fraser was sworn in at a ceremony on February 12, 2013, at the Snohomish County District Court. CJE Treasurer Mark Garka was on hand to witness and congratulate Judge Fraser. CJE member and newly appointed Black Diamond Municipal Court Judge Melanie Dane also attended.
