Greetings! I am inviting you to my official campaign kickoff for the 2016 election year! I will be running for a seat as a Guilford County District Court Judge, and I am asking for your support. I am ready to serve the people of our community, but I need your help.

Every decision a judge faces should be considered first in terms of the requirements of the law. When judicial discretion plays a role, there must be a concern for what actions best uphold the integrity of the legal system and maintain a peaceable community that respects every person. These are the values I have maintained throughout my career, and the values that I will take with me as a District Court Judge. As the court closest to the people, it is absolutely essential that every individual believes they were heard and respected, regardless of the outcome of the matter. This reflects the proper demeanor of any courtroom, and helps to maintain community respect for the law and the judicial system.

As an Assistant Public Defender I have represented clients in a wide variety of cases ranging from minor infractions up to First Degree Murder. I have practiced in District Court on a near-daily basis for over seventeen years. I am a member of the Greensboro Bar Association (GBA) and the Guilford Inn of Court. I have served as President of the Greensboro Criminal Defense Lawyers (GCDLA). I currently serve on the boards of both the GBA and the GCDLA. I also serve as a volunteer judge for the local Teen Court juvenile diversion program, through One Step Further. For more about my background, please CLICK HERE.

In seventeen years of practicing law, I have seen great needs and great opportunities to serve. There are domestic violence victims, who need judges that will ensure their protection. There are opportunities to extend a helping, healing hand, through our treatment courts. There are children who are subjected to abuse or neglect, who need strong voices for their protection. There are opportunities to uphold those whose voices are underrepresented. There are backlogged cases that need to be heard without delay, so that the families involved can move forward with their lives. There are opportunities to protect the constitutional rights and framework that guarantee freedom to us all. In a world with so many needs and opportunities, many of you have encouraged me to continue along this path because you believe that I have something to contribute on our District Court bench.

Please join me for a kickoff fundraiser on November 19, from 5-8pm. This event will take place at The Studio at Community Theatre of Greensboro, 520 S. Elm St. I hope to see you there. If you are unable to attend, but would like to send a contribution, you may send a check to: Committee to Elect Bill Davis, 5280 Beechmont Dr., Greensboro, NC 27410. Thank you very much for your support.

Sincerely yours,
