“Judge Chanti is an incredibly bright, engaging and energetic person who will be a tremendous asset to the Lane County Bench. Her respect for people of all backgrounds and tireless work ethic will make her an extraordinary judge.”

Governor Ted Kulongoski, The Eugene Register-Guard, January 27, 2010.

Our system of justice is an essential part of our democracy. It exists to serve us all. To do so it must be responsive, fair, and impartial. As a judge on your circuit court, I work hard, every day, to assure that justice is served. I do my best to ensure that every person is equal before the law. I am committed to respectfully and carefully listening to all those who appear in my courtroom and to rendering decisions that are principled and fair. I would be honored to earn your vote.
