Everyone knows the old saying, “Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke.”
The people of Hamilton County have a great General Sessions Court Judge in David Norton, who was appointed in March to fill in for the recently deceased Judge Bob Moon until the next general election.
Judge Norton has three decades of direct experience with a wide range of legal affairs in Hamilton County, having practiced as an attorney since 1977, served as assistant county attorney since 1983, and been elected Soddy Daisy city judge for three consecutive terms. Proven, respected and committed, Judge Norton is a highly effective Sessions Court judge and deserves to keep his seat on the bench.
A recent poll by Judge Norton’s piers, The Chattanooga Bar Association, gave him an outstanding 53 percent vote of confidence on the job he is doing. Look for the name of Judge David Norton on the Aug. 2 ballot and please vote to confirm him in the job he is performing so well.

Having served on a County Commission Board with David Norton for several years while he was the assistant county attorney, I found that he had the temperament necessary for judicial effectiveness. He was analytical yet practical in his approach to legal matters.
I have observed that he was also extremely open-minded and fair in all his dealings on this Board.
So that's why we should vote to keep David Norton as Sessions Court judge. A vote for David Norton is a vote for the most experienced judge we could ever hope to find.
