Lockhart announces bid for Circuit Court Judge

On Monday May 3, 2021 Attorney William Lockhart officially announced his campaign for Circuit Court Judge for the 14th Judicial District.

“I’m excited to announce my candidacy for Circuit Court Judge for the 14th Judicial District. The rule of law is the cornerstone of our democracy and having a judge that has the skills, experience, and temperament necessary to make decisions based on the law and facts only is paramount.  Circuit Court Judges hear a wide variety of cases, and I have the broad and practical experience to fairly and impartially decide the cases that come before me. As a lifelong Republican, I have always felt that a judge’s role is to apply the law and not make the law. If elected, I will always strive to make decisions based solely on the law.”

Lockhart continued “Judicial elections only come around every 8 years so I think it is very important to make an informed decision on who will be the next Circuit Court Judge. I plan on spending the next year talking with as many people as I can so that the voters of this county can make an informed decision.”
