In this episode of the Bayou Blue Democrats Club podcast series, we were lucky enough to sit down with six Democratic Judicial candidates for the upcoming November 2018 election. All six are first time candidates who have boldly and selflessly interrupted their lives to run for public service and help change our city and county for the better.
Editor’s Note – we are aware that there is some audible feedback and interference on one of the mics on this recording. All blame falls on Greg for this snafu, the candidates had absolutely nothing to do with the sub-optimal recording values!
Listen to the full episode to meet Shannon Baldwin, Tonya Jones, Toria Finch, Erica Hughes, Angela Graves-Harrington and LaShawn Williams as they discuss a wide range of topics, from why it matters who our judges are, what the upcoming election might mean for bail bonds and what the differences are between all of the courts and judgeships that are up for your vote come November!
In This Episode:
- Why are there more criminal courts than civil courts?
- How often do we get to vote for these positions?
- How difficult, and rewarding, is running for elected office?
- How to support these candidates?
- Is it important whether or not judges can relate to or represent the public?
