Bill Brown, a native of Bradley County and longtime local attorney, has announced his campaign as a Republican for Circuit Court Judge, Part 3 for the 10th Judicial District.  The seat is currently filled by Judge Carroll Ross who is retiring as of Aug. 31, 2014.

Mr. Brown said, “Judge Ross has made such a significant commitment and positive impact on the judiciary in this part of Tennessee that there are truly big shoes to fill.  That being said, it is my firm belief that effective leadership can only come from those with experience, an understanding of the community they serve, and the support of one’s family.

"It is in the spirit of service and commitment to excellence that I am announcing my candidacy for Circuit Court Judge, Part 3.  I seek this position with no intention other than to give back to the community that has given so much to me and my family.  After 30 years of legal practice in this beautiful area of our state, which includes 9 years of exclusive criminal practice, I feel I have the experience necessary to ensure a fair and impartial judiciary is maintained for all citizens.  It is with this practical experience and objective approach to the law that, with the continued support of law enforcement, I will seek to provide a safe and prosperous community for everyone. 

"If I am fortunate enough to be elected as your next Circuit Court Judge it is my commitment to the people of this community to pursue the truth, rule with objectivity and understanding, and to always ensure the law enforcement community receives the support and protection they deserve for the invaluable service they provide.

"A vote for me in the Republican Primary is a vote for responsible, effective, conservative leadership.  I ask for your vote on May 6, 2014 in the Republican Primary for Circuit Court Judge, Part 3.”

The 10th Judicial District covers Bradley, McMinn, Polk, and Monroe Counties.  The seat of Circuit Court Judge, Part 3 has traditionally heard only criminal cases while civil cases are heard by parts 1 and 2.

Mr. Brown currently serves on the board of The Caring Place and is a member of the session of First Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Cleveland, Tennessee.  Ending in 2010, he completed 15 years of service on the Cleveland City School Board with three years as chairman. He is married to Marsha Brown and they have two adult children, Andy and Ann Marie.

Mr. Brown said, “I look forward to the opportunity to introduce myself to the voters of the 10th Judicial District, discuss the issues that are important to them, and hopefully serve as your next Circuit and Criminal Court Judge.”
