Candidates in Runoff Election
Distinguished Women. Distinguished Service.
We believe by electing more women to public office we will improve the quality of life for all Georgians. We are fortunate to have remarkable women and male allies in runoff elections on November 30, 2010. Learn more about each below.
Candidate for the Georgia’s Court of Appeals
.“The fabric of our democracy is dependent upon the impartial application of the rule of law. My decision to serve arises from my desire to join with those who believe that our judges should apply the laws passed by their representatives in a manner consistent with the values of the people of this state. Traveling this state and listening to the voices of its people, I understand the desire for judges who protect the safety and property of those who work hard, secure our families and make our communities strong. Our courts must reflect the common sense and best values of the remarkable people they are entrusted to serve and if elected, I pledge to do so on their behalf.”

Tammy Lynn Adkins
Candidate for Georgia’s Supreme Court
.I believe that Georgia Supreme Court Justices should interpret the laws and the Constitution and should never legislate from the bench. I believe that Justices of The Supreme Court should be non-partisan and elected by the people of Georgia, rather than appointed by any politician.
As an elected Justice, I promise to be fair and impartial to all citizens of Georgia. Because I have spent my career representing regular citizens, I will decide cases from practical experience. Since The Supreme Court reviews the rulings of trial judges, my 18 years of trial and courtroom experience gives me the perfect background to be your next Supreme Court Justice.

The Macon Circuit serves Bibb, Crawford and Peach Counties. There is a runoff for both Superior Court Judge and the District Attorney. A District Attorney serves as the top prosecutor for all the citizens in the circuit. While no women are in this race, one candidate has demonstrated a strong allegiance towards women and women’s issues.
No women are in the race for Superior Court Judge either, but Howard Simms, the former District Attorney, has been campaigning on the issues that matter to us most—protecting our families and securing justice.
