Friends and fellow citizens:
I would like to take this opportunity to formally announce my candidacy for re-election to the office of District Judge of Clark County.
I am a graduate of Ouachita Baptist University and the William H. Bowman School of Law and was a practicing attorney in Arkadelphia. I have served as a deputy prosecuting attorney for the 7th and 9th East judicial districts and was the appointed Clark County Municipal Judge to serve an unexpired term on that court. I have continuously served as the elected Clark County District Court Judge since 1999.
I am a past president of the Clark County Bar Association and Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association. I have had the honor of serving on the Arkadelphia Planning Commission, Board of Directors of the Arkadelphia Chamber of Commerce, and Board of Clark County Humane Society. I currently serve as the President of the Arkansas District Judges Council, as well as membership in the Arkansas Judicial Council and Arkansas District Judges Association. I also had the honor of serving our country in the U.S. Army Reserve.
Throughout my tenure on the bench I have always applied the law to the specific facts of any given case in a fair and impartial manner in my decisions. Fundamental fairness to all involved parties is my guiding principle in all matters that come before me as judge. Moreover, one of my proudest accomplishments is the honor of presiding over the misdemeanor and felony drug court program that assists people who need the opportunity and guidance necessary to overcome addiction and improve their lives.
I am married to Jessica McLeod Hill, who is a school based counselor for Gurdon schools. She and I are the parents of two adult children.
It is my sincere desire to continue in public service and I humbly ask for your vote.
