Winchester Judge Won't Seek Reelection

After serving the citizens of the 12th Judicial District since 1986, Circuit Judge Buddy Perry will not seek re-election to the post when his term ends, The Herald Chronicle reports. In making the announcement, Perry said, “This is a difficult decision to make, not because of a desire to continue in office, but because of all the friends, colleagues, associates and wonderful people throughout the district I will miss seeing, talking and working with.” He also expressed his appreciation to the other judges in the district as well as the local public defender, district attorney general, court clerks and administrative staff for their support over the years.
