Experience • Committed • Leadership

 Working Hard for the Citizens of Lincoln County

It is my honor to continue to serve as your Circuit Court Judge.  Over the course of this judicial race, I have been moved by the outpouring of kindness from people all over this community.  I want to thank my support network, those that campaigned tirelessly on my behalf, and the voters.  I also want to thank my family:  My parents who always told me I could do anything I set my mind to; my sister, Sharon, who gave me encouragement by telling me to keep going; my husband, Mike, who lovingly encouraged me to take this leap of faith; and my children, Pat, Kasie and Sharon.  I especially want to thank my technologically savvy daughter, Sharon, for helping her mother with her campaign website, pounding countless lawn signs, and being an incredible source of support for me.  I ran this campaign in a way that I hoped would make Sharon proud of her mother.  Just as my parents told me I could do anything I set my mind to, I want Sharon to know the same is true for her.  Thank you voters of Lincoln County for your confidence in me.  


Judge Marcia Buckley 



For more than 27 years, I have been an attorney in Lincoln County, a place I am proud to call my home. My husband, Mike, is a retired Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputy, who now works at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.  We have raised our family here, and care very much about our 

I have dedicated my 27 year career to helping people navigate their way through the court system; helping clients during emotional, difficult times; and protecting the rights of those involved in our legal system. 


I firmly believe every person should have access to justice.  As a Judge, it is my goal to continue to do my part to make that happen.

Experienced, committed leadership
