Albany- Attorney Debra Bernes is one of the six candidates for Georgia Court of Appeals. She says she's argued more than 50 cases and filed more than 400 legal briefs before the court of appeals. The Theme of her campaign is "experience that matters."

"I have more appellate experience than any other candidate in this race. I understand the appellate process. I understand the need for predictability in the law, that each case is a road map for the next," she says.

Attorney William Ashley Hawkins is also banking on his experience before the appeals court to land him a seat on the bench.

He says he's tried 32 cases in appeals court, and never had any of his cases reversed on appeal. He says his campaigning methods set him apart from his 5 opponents.

"I am the only candidate that is not taking campaign contributions from anybody. To wage a real good campaign it will take between $250,000 to $300,000 if it's properly done. I'm doing it as low budget as I can," Hawkins admits.

The other four candidates are attorneys Howard Mead, Mike Sheffield, Lee Wallace and Juvenile Judge Thomas Rawlings.
