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.
