LAGRANGE - As the May 6th Primary Election approaches, LaGrange County Republicans face something they haven’t seen in nearly 30 years: contests for both of the county’s judgeships.

For Superior Court Judge, incumbent George Brown is challenged by LaGrange attorney Lisa Bowen-Slaven.

Brown feels his service has deserved another term.

"I think my record speaks for itself. I stand by that record. I'm proud of that record. I think that record has earned another term. I look forward to serving that term, and I mean an entire term. Despite some rumors that have been put out by others about me running in place of someone else. I'm not running as a stand-in. I'm not running as a stalking horse. I'm running for me."

Bowen-Slaven feels the county should have a choice when it comes to Superior Court Judge.

"My entire platform boils down to this: I desire to serve you. You are who matters to me. I will treat the position with the respect and dignity it deserves. I have dreams of working alongside the various departments in our county government to offer programs that will impact the community in a positive way. I desire to the run the courtroom in an efficient fashion, and a court where everyone is treated with respect and their case is resolved in a timely manner."

No Democrat has emerged to challenge the winner. The Superior Court Judge serves a six year term.
