Fay Stetz-Waters, new Linn County Circuit judge, will be the guest speaker Thursday, Feb. 1, at the Linn County Democrats' monthly general meeting in the Albany Public Library meeting room, 2450 14th Ave. S.E.
A social time with light refreshments starts at 6 p.m. The meeting begins at 6:30.
Judge Stetz-Waters brings her experience as a Marine, 911 dispatcher, Legal Aid attorney, administrative law judge and hearings officer to her work as a circuit judge.
Her personal journey – from a girl growing up in Baltimore who enlisted in the Marines to an experienced attorney and now judge – shaped her values and informs her work on the bench. Judge Stetz-Waters said she is committed to following the law, knowing that her rulings impact the lives of those who appear in her courtroom.
