Current District Court Judge Emily White and Jim Reynolds, both candidates seeking office in the next election, were at the Mansfield Senior Center on Wednesday, October 30.

Judge White is seeking the District 4, Position 2, Arkansas Court of Appeals seat.  This district covers 15 counties along the western part of the state from Sebastian to Miller Counties and includes Logan, Scott, Yell, Garland, Montgomery, Polk, Sevier, Howard, Pike, Clark, Hot Spring, Hempstead and Little River.

White has practiced law for 18 years and has expertise in criminal law, civil practice and judicial ethics. She currently serves as District Court Judge in the 33rd State District Court, which is Hot Spring and Grant Counties.  Her platform is that of ethics and fairness.

“She is such an intelligent lady,” said Sue Moore, a patron of the center. “She’s kind and heartfelt, I know she will do well serving as appeals judge.”

White had coffee with the area seniors. Joining her were Mansfield Mayor Buddy Black and District 21 State Representative candidate Jim Reynolds. Reynolds, a republican candidate, is a retired educator who owns an advertising business in Greenwood.

White’s opponent, Stephanie Potter Barrett, is from Texarkana. Reynolds is running against incumbent, District 21 State Representative Marcus Richmond.
