Long-time judge announces her retirement

October 19, 2005

Sylvester-- Virginia Andrews has served as the probate judge in Worth County for 25 years. In addition to personal reasons, she says she felt it was just time she moved on.

The 60-year-old jurist says she's looking forward to spending her free time fishing and working with her church. Although she admits she'll miss interacting with people every day.

"Thank you for allowing me to be here for those 25 years and thank you for the nice comments, certainly the nice comments they have made since my announcement of retirement," said the Judge.

Andrews' last day will be December 31st. She will be replaced by her chief clerk Sheryl Hall.

There will be special election for the post next November, and Andrews says the new judge will take over January 2008.
