ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The two candidates who want to be Dougherty County's next Superior Court Judge faced off Tuesday afternoon.
Denise Marshall and Willie Weaver are running for the judgeship.
Marshall has been an Associate Magistrate Court and State Court Judge since 1997. Weaver has been the Chief Municipal Court Judge for four years.
Weaver said "I'm here to tell you that based on my credentials I am the best qualified candidate for Superior Court Judge."
Marshall said "I'm hopelessly convinced that strong courts build strong communities. That strong communities build strong families. And that strong families build strong children."
Weaver and Marshall are vying in the November election for the Dougherty Superior Court Judgeship being vacated by Loring Gray's retirement.
