This is Scott Gallina, from Clark and Feeney Law firm. He was sworn-in Friday afternoon and introduced by Governor Inslee.
The governor said he's the perfect fit.
"We need a judge that has demonstrated fairness, objectivity, strength of character and professionalism and Scott Gallina has it all," said Governor Inslee. "He's a perfect selection for the trial court."
Judge Gallina will serve the Hell's Canyon Circuit, which includes Asotin, Columbia, and Garfield counties. He replaces Judge William Acey who retired.
The governor also walked down the street to Asotin High School where he was pleasantly surprised by some special performances. Each grade level put together their own routine and wowed the crowd with their skills. Governor Inslee told the students they are some of the best athletes in America.
