The Piedmont Judicial Circuit will have a new Superior Court Judge in January. Long-time Superior Court judge Robert Adamson is not seeking re-election. Currie Mingledorff, Winder, was was the only person to qualify for Adamson’s seat.
“I am excited and eager to begin doing the important work this office requires,” Mingledorff said. “I believe entering this position without an opponent is a clear statement that residents approved of my qualifications. Now it’s time to get busy and get to work for them.”
A former county attorney for Barrow, Mingledorff has over 21 years of legal experience. He has also worked with organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America and The Tree House – a nonprofit organization supporting families and serving abused children in the Piedmont Judicial Circuit.
Mingledorff and his wife of 26 years, ViAnn, have many long-time connections with Jackson County through Viann’s family. Her father, the late Doyle Johnson, operated a dairy farm on Highway 334 during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.
The Mingledorffs have been married for 26 years.
In addition to Mingledorff, Jerry Gray will continue as the Jackson County State Court Judge and Superior Court judges David Motes and Joe Booth will serve another term.
