Soni Brendle is excited to support David Strickland's run for Superior Court Judge in Mecklenburg County. See the message below from David.
I am proud and excited to announce my candidacy for the Democratic nomination to Superior Court Judicial District 26D. This is the seat currently held by Judge Lisa Bell. I humbly ask for your support.
I have served for eight years as a District Court Judge from 2013-2020, and I want to continue to serve the community as a Superior Court Judge.
I have a wealth of experience as a District Court Judge presiding in every courtroom within District Court. I have been the lead Juvenile Judge and the lead Involuntary Commitment Judge for Mecklenburg County. I have presided over numerous civil jury trials, and I have handled serious felony charges as a Juvenile Judge. I have the unique experience necessary to be an effective Superior Court Judge.
Experience is important when addressing matters that will come before me in Superior Court. I believe my professional and personal experience has prepared me for this opportunity. I have a long record of serving in the community and will continue to volunteer my time as opportunities arise.
I am known as a Judge who works hard and has a good temperament. I will work to make sure citizens are heard, treated with respect and have a fair hearing. These characteristics are my strengths, and I pledge to continue this when elected as a Superior Court Judge.
I appreciate your support as the campaign season begins.
