Barker to Seek Reelection

Judge Michael Barker has announced he's running for reelection. The magistrate judge is seeking a second term at the Chatham County Courthouse. Judge Barker was appointed to the position after his dad, Judge Bob Barker, stepped down last December.

He says he enjoys helping people solve their problems. "I think everyone wants a judge who will listen to their side, give them a fair opportunity to be heard, and--within the bounds of relevancy and within the bounds of Georgia rules of evidence--make a decision," he said.

The election for the magistrate judges will be on July 20.
