Two Judge Races in Runoffs

Duluth voters will return to the polls today. Runoff elections to fill two Gwinnett County judgeships will occur Tuesday, Aug 21. These races are non-partisan.

Two runoff candidates are vying for the Gwinnett Superior Court judgeship being vacated by retiring Judge K. Dawson Jackson. They are Tracey Mason Blasi and Kathy Schrader.

Blasi, a Lawrenceville attorney, is a former Duluth Municipal Court judge.

Schrader, a Duluth attorney and mediator, is a past president of the Gwinnett Bar Association. She serves as an associate Municipal Court judge for the cities of Duluth and Sugar Hill.

Emily Brantley and Pam Britt are seeking to replace Gwinnett State Court Judge Robert “Bob” Mock, who also is retiring.

Brantley, a Suwanee resident, is an attorney in private practice in Gwinnett County.

Britt, a Lawrenceville attorney, is past president of the Gwinnett Criminal Justice Bar.

Both of these contests had been five-way races in the July 31 General Primary.

Voting in Primary Runoff elections takes place in regular precinct locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

No voting will take place Monday, Aug. 20.
