I would like to talk about the race for Family Court Judge, this is one of the most important Judgeships there is because it touches children, grandparents, abuse, neglect, divorces. It allows the Judge to see everything that is going on in your family structure right down to who declares who on their income taxes. Money can be replace but not lives. Rob Mattingley job was by appointment, and now thank goodness we get to elect who is going to get up close and personal with our affair. I firmly believe that when a person hold office to long they become immune to the situtions that are under their control, in other words they label the case prior to hearing it. I hope Calloway and Marshall County will get out there and vote. I am going to give my vote to Lisa A. DeRenard she has all the qualifactions to run in this election she has been practicing family law, where as Mattingley's firm handles mostly contracts and real estate. Ms. DeRenard has seen the effects of the Judges rulings and she has had family issues just like everyone else, doctors lawyers, Walmart employees etc. Therefore she comes to this office with hands on experience the best kind to have. Mr. Mattingly said he prayed about the decision to run for this Judgeship. Ms. DeRenard prayed that if she ran she could do a good job for the people of Calloway and Marshall County and that he would give her the wisdom and compassion to do the very best for the Families that come before her. She already knew she wanted the job and that she had the time to give to it. She has her own practice and has all the time needed to give this Judgeship. Think about who will be the best for your family if you ever need the Court to resolve a problem for your family.
