Meet the Candidates: Lowndes Superior Court Judge

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - One of the Superior Court judgeships in the Southern Judicial Circuit is open for the first time in 35 years. Two candidates in Lowndes County hope to be the next person on the bench.

Jim Tunison has been practicing law in Lowndes County for 20 years. He says it's been a recent dream of his to take that next step and become a judge.

But attorney Greg Voyles shares the same dream. Voyles has been a lawyer since 1998.

They hope to replace long time and respected judge Arthur McLane.

Both believe they've got what it takes to win.

"My life experience through working through college and law school qualifies me to be on the bench so I can be fair, hear people's disputes and help them resolve them with a fair and honest decision," Tunison says.

"Throughout my life I've worked in various positions with people of all different races and economic levels. I think that can only help me in making my decisions that are fair and just based upon the evidence and the law," Voyles adds.

Judge McLane has served as Superior Court Judge for 35 years.

He never faced any opposition while on the bench.
