Nyjat Rose-Akins is an experienced pro tem judge, assistant city attorney, and long-time Seattle resident. She is well-experienced working with stakeholders to improve the health, safety, and livability of our City. Her perspective on the criminal legal system is informed by her own background as a Jamaican immigrant, graduate of Howard University, business professional, and lawyer.
As a Seattle Municipal Court judge, I presided over many court hearings and trials in which Nyjat participated. Her compassion, intelligence, and integrity were always evident. I am confident those qualities will continue to shine when she is elected to the bench. I fully endorse her for SMC, Position 7.
Nyjat is smart, compassionate, and dedicated to public service. She has proven her ability to work effectively and collaboratively with community leaders and institutions. Nyjat will make an excellent judge for the people of Seattle.
Nyjat has proven herself as a skilled, compassionate, and intelligent jurist serving as a pro tem judge for me. I trust her to properly balance protecting the rights of those in her courtroom while holding people accountable for their mistakes. I endorse her for Seattle Municipal Court Judge without reservation.
The work of the Seattle Municipal court is essential to the health and safety of our community. We need judges that are committed to equity and understand the importance of both accountability and effective alternatives. When I needed counsel from the City Attorney, I always had great confidence when Nyjat was in the room. She has deep experience, a smart, compassionate and balanced approach and keen intelligence. She is exactly what we need on the court.
