Judge Kevin Wilson Is Prompt, Fair And Consistent

Monday, July 28, 2014

Collegedale has grown a lot in the past 24 years and Collegedale Judge Kevin Wilson has literally seen it all during that time.  Kevin Wilson was first elected as the judge in Collegedale in 1990.  Since that time, he has served the people of Collegedale faithfully as their municipal judge.  As an attorney practicing in Hamilton County for more than 23 years, I have known Judge Wilson my entire legal career.

It is easy to see why Judge Wilson is such a popular judge in Collegedale.  Citizens who come to Judge Wilson’s court as witnesses, victims, lawyers, police officers or defendants all know what to expect from Judge Wilson in every case.  Judge Wilson patiently listens to the parties, witnesses and their attorneys as they present the drama of each case, important facts and pertinent legal principles to him in court.  He is prompt and fair in his judgments, consistent in his rulings, fair in his punishment, well versed in the law and respectful to all who appear before him.  

Judge Wilson is highly respected by those in law enforcement, the legal community, and by his fellow judges in Hamilton County.  The wide range of respect from those who most likely know his legal credentials the best is excellent evidence of Judge Wilson’s longstanding success as the Collegedale judge for the past 24 years.  This well deserved respect has been earned by long years of dedicated service from Judge Kevin Wilson who is currently one of the longest-serving active judges in Hamilton County in office.  

Judge Wilson has everything one could ask for in a judge.  His 24 years in that office speaks volumes about his character and qualifications.  You don’t have to look beyond Kevin Wilson to know he is the one to re-elect as Collegedale’s judge.  I encourage the citizens of Collegedale to re-elect Judge Kevin Wilson as their municipal judge for another term in office on election day.

I am deeply saddened that over two dozen members of Congress – all Democrats – will be boycotting a speech by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, when he speaks in Washington tonight. I am also offended that the President of the United States will not receive Netanyahu prior to the speech – a customary gesture on such occasions – because he claims it is too close to ...
