Judge Mark Chow has served the Seattle and King County community as district court judge since 1990, ensuring equitable access to justice for all members of the community, fair and reasonable treatment, and a dedication to service that puts a face to the judicial system for new residents, young people, and those most in need.

"Judge Mark Chow is extremely well-qualified as district court judge, providing equitable access to justice and educating others throughout the legal system. Our justice system is fairer because of his leadership and he should be re-elected." -Assistant Chief Justice Charles W. Johnson
Mark's mother, Ruby Chow, was a pioneer in Seattle politics long before women of color would become part of elected government. From helping troubled youth, to assisting immigrants who lacked the ability to speak English, she was a tireless advocate on behalf of the disenfranchised. Mark continues this legacy with his work on the bench, providing access to justice for all Seattleites.
