Who is this person running for judge? I saw her signs around town but can't find out anything about her. Nobody seems to have heard of her. Does anybody know anything? Who's she running against?

She is from Cobb County and her only page (last I saw) on face book was Roy Barnes.

She went to college in Chicago and is a prosecutor in Fulton Co. Why she wants to run in Douglas County is a mystery to me? Why not Cobb or Fulton?

Her website is Jenniferknightforjudge(dot)com
and it has a link to her Facebook page.
She got her bachelors degree from UGA and her law degree from Loyola University.

She used work in Atlanta's Solicitor's Office and then Fulton Co. DA's office, then she opened her own law office.

She lives in Douglas Co.

I see nothing about Roy Barnes on her Facebook campaign page.

She must have deleted Roy's page, she can't show partiality in her race.

I am Jennifers assistant and work in her office.

She is running for judge to have accurate adequate law in Douglas County, she believe in fair honest rulings and a fair and honest police force.

She has great experience including both prosecutor and defense so she knows both sides of the story and is able to look at things from all angles!

Her family lives in Douglas County and she has 2 twin daughters and a husband who she loves dearly.

She supports fair honest court room behavior and has a record to back up everything she is running for!

She is young and an advocate in the courtroom and will be the next superior court judge of Douglas County!

Diane,

Thank you for your comment but I am sure if you read cases Jennifer has sat on and prosecuted as a DA you will see she is far from emotional. She also stands up to the Judges in this County and does not back down while defending clients.

Though I respect your comment and your view, I strongly think you can not judge someone until you look at their record.

Diane,

She is neither judges are nonpartisan and rule based upon the law and not a political agenda.

Judges are non partisan and are ethically and morally barred from expressing their political views look at the Supreme Court, none in the Supreme Court give any notion as to which party they are a member of and during events like the State of the Union, do not clap or acknowledge Congress because they are nonpartisan. A Judges job is to issue a fair and devout ruling upon a case that comes before them. Considering ALL evidence and protecting the rights of the people involved, make the best decision based upon that and the law of the land.

I have issues with a stranger, with no judicial experience. I understand she has courtroom experience, but she's never decided a case. I don't know why that bothers me.

I want someone that will be tough on criminals. If you throw them in jail and give them the full sentence for what ever crime, the next criminal will think twice before committing a crime. I'm sick of crime in MY county and I want someone tough!

Anon,

First, A stranger she is not to Douglas County. She was born and raised here, like most senators or officials she practices elsewhere and then returns home to settle down and make where she started a better place. She Prosecuted and clerked in Fulton after law school and has been in private practice for a while now.

Second, in terms of experience I completely understand and I ask you to consider these things...

The court that decided Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 did not have a single justice who had been a judge. It had three former attorneys general, three former U.S. senators, a former governor of California and an early chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

of the 111 justices who have served on the Supreme Court , 40 had no prior judicial experience. 4 of those being Chief Justices.

The ranks of those who have not been judges before include some of our most illustrious Supreme Court justices. I think, in fact, if you compare the justices who have not been judges, they stand out as a more distinguished group in their work on the Supreme Court than those who had previously been judges.

People who have been judges for a long time develop very narrow technical skills, which are not suitable for fair honest rulings especially in a small town like Douglas County. But cases come to the Superior Court precisely because there is no clear legal answer, and judges have to use judgment and all the tools of a Superior Court judge and the law to come up with a sense of the history and structure of the Constitution and what makes a workable legal ruling.

Fair Honest Decision Makers! Douglas County is in need of a fresh voice.

Just my thoughts Anon...

Even the most experienced judges once had no judicial experience.
You get that experience by becoming a judge.

You say fair and honest decision maker. Where do you get that? She's made no decisions on anything.

I disagree that it is a good thing to have justices with no experience. Just my thoughts.

Also, Cobb County is not Douglas County. I know that's not a huge difference on a map, but I like to know the people I vote for.
