Williamson County native, Judge James “Randy” Moore emerged as the top vote getter by a slight margin during the recent Primary election on March 15. He garnered more than 100,000 votes district-wide, as he is looking forward to traveling the massive district to get out his message of commonsense jurisprudence. Moore says what he brings to the court is the life experience of having children and grandchildren.
Moore further stated a judge makes decisions based from legal training and life experience.
Moore is currently serving as the assigned Justice to the 5th District Appellate Court in Mt. Vernon. The Judge announced his campaign on October 13 for the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice James Wexstten.
