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.
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.

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.
