Attorney Catherine Cate White Running For Circuit Court Judge

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Attorney Catherine Cate White announced Thursday that she is running for Circuit Court judge, Division 1.

Judge Jackie Bolton announced Wednesday that she will not seek re-election.

Attorney White said, "It is both my privilege and honor to inform you that I am seeking to fill the Division I Judgeship in the Circuit Court of Hamilton County Tennessee. In the weeks ahead an official announcement will be made to the public, campaign volunteers will be recruited, and the business of running for office will go into full swing. As I proceed with developing a campaign for this endeavor, your support would be a welcome blessing.

"You may be familiar with my work as an attorney here, as I have had my solo practice since 1992, which includes Family Law and Rule 31 Supreme Court Approved Family Law mediation. As such, I am well-versed not only in family law, but the mechanics of the Circuit Court of Hamilton County. I have also had the privilege of sitting as a Special Judge for the Chattanooga City Court on an as-needed basis in 2012 and 2013, which has assisted in grooming me for this opportunity.

"I am very passionate about pursuing this endeavor, as I see it not only as furthering my career, but most importantly, furthering my service to the community. Family Law is a passion, and requires hard work and sacrifice. The benefit has been watching clients transition from broken souls to healthy, self-sufficient individuals with a desire to make it work in their world. As a Judge in the Circuit Court, I would have the opportunity to continue this ministry to the community by providing consistent application of the law in order to assist our community residents in resolving their legal conflicts in a just and fair manner."

Henry Hoss is serving as her campaign treasurer.
