Promises to act with Courtesy, Courage, & Common Sense
OZARK – State Representative Sarah Capp today announced her candidacy for the new District Judge position in Judicial District 7. The district includes Franklin and Johnson counties. State Representative Sarah Capp said:
“It’s been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve as District 82’s State Representative. I believe I have effectively advocated for my district and led with common sense and conservative values. The greatest reward for me has been helping others and that’s truly been a blessing.
In every decision I make I have always strived to put my family first. With my solo legal practice, my obligations as Franklin County’s public defender, and as serving as state representative, my time at home with my family has been stretched thin. I’ve prayed for direction and discernment in my decision to seek the new full time District Court Judge position in Judicial District 7, comprised of Johnson and Franklin Counties. Judges are in the business of serving the people of Arkansas through the Rule of Law and I look forward to the opportunity to do so. I’m the best candidate for this position and possess the right skill set to serve in the Judiciary with my experience and leadership skills.
This is the right position for me and the right time in my life to seek it. From the bottom of my heart I thank my constituents for their continued love and support during the remainder of my term.”
