I’m going to give some praise to my friend Tripp Self, who is running for Superior Court Judge in the Macon Judicial Circuit. The seat, which has come available due to a retirement, is the first open seat on the bench in that circuit since 1986. Tripp is a Citadel grad, spent time in Korea, and is an all around good guy.
He announced he was going to run and has spent eight weeks out there talking to people. The response has been overwhelming — in eight weeks, people have contributed over 63,000.00 for a nonpartisan race that does not happen until November. His support reads like a who’s who list of the circuit — and it is really bipartisan.
There are probably going to be five people in this race. I’m biased. I worked with Tripp for five years and think he’d be the best candidate. And it seems like a lot of other people agree.
