Most people don't know the people in our county that keep order and administer justice.
No, it's not the Justice League. Our justice is administered in a different fashion.
There are a bevy of Circuit and District Court judges and several of them are up for election this year, and there are a boatload of candidates.
I heard a number of judicial candidates speak at the Stonewall Democrat's Wine Loft mixer, plus I have read a bit about them and paid attention to the ratings by the Birmingham Bar Association.
Without a lot of fan fare, here are the ones to vote for. Some of these are just in Bessemer Division, some are County wide, some might just be in the Birmingham Division.
