Really~ He already got handed his commonwealth attorney position and I don't guess that is good enough! That don't surprise me any, but he is not the one for the judges seat. One person gets 10 to 15 years and Mt.or Mrs. well known gets a pat on the back!
not again

It'll be the same ol sht with Wright as it was with Weddle just wait and see. If you're buddies with the right person, have enough cash, or be willing to sck his dck you'll have it made. Sorry to say but if the people who are fed up with this crap doesnt get out and vote it's gonna be the same nightmare all over for another 8 years and the cck suckers will win again!

WRONG! Judy has worked for Judge Weddle, Wright and the common folks.
Brian still does what his daddy tells him to. He has stepped on a lot of toes and money don't buy as many votes like it used to. So it's time to RIGHT the Wrong and get a honest, hard working person as our next Circuit judge.

Previous criminal record plays alot in that. Ky law gives the courts some room to decide on a sentence. Alot of the times it depends on if they take a plea deal or go to trial. If you go to trial and lose you are usually going to get alot more time then if you took the plea deal. This happens every where, not just Casey Co.

I believe Brian Wright is the person for the judges seat. He has experience in the circuit courtroom way more than Judy Vance. If someone received a lesser punishment for the same crime another committed there is always that possiblity they had a really good attorney and not the public defenders office. It's not always about who you are, who you know or how much money you have to give.

He only has experience in one area of the law! Judy is in the courtroom every week, with all kinds of cases he wouldn't even know how to do! Prosecution was he game and he isn't the one Casey and Adair Co need as a Circuit Court Judge! Get your facts straight. VOTE JUDY VANCE
