I am submitting this letter as an endorsement for Juli Pierce, a candidate for the Yellowstone County District Court Judge.

Pierce brings over 13 years’ experience as a prosecutor in Yellowstone County and is a Billings native.

She works tirelessly to improve the lives in our community, both through her legal work and her volunteer efforts. Her years of experience, broad legal background, and experience working as a Child Protective Services social worker and president of the board of Center for Children and Families make her uniquely qualified to address the challenges facing our community and to understand the needs of local families.

As a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, I have been able to work closely with Pierce on a few sexual assault cases, including a high-profile case she prosecuted to a successful conviction.

I have witnessed firsthand Pierce’s professionalism, fairness, and dedication to her practice and the community.

Therefore, I have no doubt that Pierce will make an exceptional judge and that she will serve our community with impartiality and integrity. Please join me in voting for Juli Pierce.
