Associate Chief Justice Charles Johnson visited Prevail CU, Seattle; Woodstone CU, Federal Way; TAPCO CU, Tacoma; TwinStar CU, Olympia; and Our Community, Shelton; and Columbia CU, Vancouver. He is running for a six-year term against two opponents. Supreme Court Justice Mary Fairhurst visited Prevail CU, Woodstone CU, Columbia CU, Watermark CU, Seattle; Numerica CU, Spokane; Yakima Valley CU, Yakima; Spokane FCU; and Spokane Teachers CU. She is running against one opponent for a six-year term. The league worked with the justices in coordinating the visits to credit unions.

"The Washington Credit Union League has a long history of working with elected leaders in a non-partisan manner," said League President John Annaloro. "Associate Chief Justice Charles Johnson's and Justice Mary Fairhurst's proven commitment to the rule of law and to our state's constitution has earned them the league's support and our assistance in reaching out to our member credit unions," he added. Justice Fairhurst stopped at Numerica's headquarters to talk to employees about the judicial system and her role as a Supreme Court justice, said the credit union. "It was refreshing to have a candidate show interest in your industry, the issues that affect us and our communities," said Numerica President/CEO Dennis Cutter.
