Duluth attorney Kathy Schrader has announced her candidacy for the Gwinnett Superior Court seat left open by the retirment of Judge Dawson Jackson. Tracey Mason Blasi and Chris McClurg have previously announced their candidacy.
Kathy Schrader will hold a Campaign Kickoff Celebration to officially launch her campaign to succeed the retiring Judge Dawson Jackson to the Gwinnett County Superior Court. Any one interested in meeting Schrader and learning more about her judicial philosophy is welcome to attend on December 1, 2011 between 4:30 and 6:30 at The McCart Building, located at 2405 Satellite Boulevard in Duluth. Hosts include The McCart Group, her parents, Joe and Nancy McCart, brother, Jeff McCart, brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Alicia McCart, her husband, Richard Schrader and several of their colleagues. A representative from the Gwinnett County Domestic Violence Shelters will be in attendance to accept donations of winter coats and baby items.
“I’m running for Superior Court because my experience managing a wide range of complex legal issues provides me unique credentials to deliver justice in a manner that will have the most positive impact for our community and our families. From serving as a Municipal Court Judge, to leading the Gwinnett County Bar Association, working with community organizations and churches, I have consistently sought ways to serve, protect and improve our community.” said Schrader.
In 2005 and 2007, the Georgia Judicial Nominating Commission recommended Schrader for appointment to Gwinnett County Superior Court.
