The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Judge Faubion is set to retire


To The Eagle:

Thirty-eight years ago last April I was appointed by the Wahkiakum County Board of Commissioners as Wahkiakum District Court Judge. I have been elected and reelected in each election since then by the voters in the county.

As a young child and fourth generation Wahkiakum County citizen I walked the streets of Cathlamet with eyes wide with wonder at the marvels of this community and its inhabitants.

I have witnessed many changes in Wahkiakum County over the years. The independence and resilience of this community encourage me that all things are possible, you just have to figure how.

It has been a distinct honor and privilege to serve as your elected judge. I am humbled by the experience, but it is now time for change. I am retiring as District Court Judge on August 31, 2017.

I will continue with my private law practice and perhaps have a little more time off with my family and bird dogs.

The county commissioners will once again select a new District Court Judge to serve until the November, 2018 election. I encourage you all to provide input into the selection process.

Thank you all for your support and understanding these many years.


William J. Faubion

Wahkiakum County District Court Judge
