from a local attorney:
"I am asking for your support in tomorrow's Fayette County District Court judge's race. We need to elect KIM WILKIE as our next District Court judge. The Fayette County Bar Associationconducted a poll amongst it's members who regularly practice against our current judge and practice with Kim Wilkie. The bar results were overwhelmingly in favor of Kim and against his opponent, Maria Ransdell. Kim has the knowledge, the experience, and the demeanor to run an efficient and civilized courtroom. The Herald-Leader conducted interviews with each candidate and also looked at the poll results and they also are putting their support behind Kim Wilkie. TheFraternal Order of Police have also put their support behind Kim.
District Court judges are very important and touch each of our lives. No one plans to go to court, but sometimes that's where you find yourself. District judges make rulings on traffic violations, emergency protective orders, evictions, probate matters, juvenile proceedings, misdemeanors, and whether a felony can proceed to the grand jury. This is an important election and I hope that you will consider this email when you cast your vote tomorrow and please pass it on to your Fayette Co. friends if you do not live in Fayette Co. I am asking this of you both as a former prosecutor and an attorney that regularly practices in District Court."
