HERNANDO, MISS–Judge Bobby Chamberlin will formally announce his campaign for election to the Mississippi Supreme Court at stops in Tupelo, Columbus and Hernando on Thursday.
“I am running for the Mississippi Supreme Court because I believe that every citizen of the State of Mississippi, when they step into a courtroom, is entitled to a fair and impartial playing field and should be treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve. I am the best candidate to serve in this position due to my unique background and experience. I have been a small town lawyer helping people with their everyday problems, represented governmental entities and served in the Mississippi State Senate. I have over 7 year’s experience as a Municipal Court Judge as well as over 11 years on the Circuit Court bench. In addition, I have experience as a Municipal Prosecutor and as a Special Master in Chancery Court. This unique combination of experience will provide me the knowledge and judicial temperament necessary to hit the ground running on day one as a Mississippi Supreme Court Justice.”
