Potter County Court-at-Law #2 judge Pamela Cook Sirmon has earned the support of a local law enforcement group in the race for 320th District Judge.
According to information released this week, Sirmon has earned the support of the Potter County Deputy Sheriff's Association Fraternal Order of the Police. A statement from the group says that members chose Sirmon unanimously due to her proven record and ability to step into the 320th District Court.
"Judge Sirmon has over 29 years experience as a judge, prosecutor and attorney in private practice and when working with law enforcement has always displayed a knowledgeable, dedicated, respectful, demeanor," the group said in a statement. "These attributes clearly make Judge Sirmon the logical choice for 320th District Court Judge."
Sirmon is running in the March 6th Republican primary to replace the retiring Judge Don Emerson. Sirmon is being opposed by former Amarillo city attorney Marcus W. Norris, attorney Lynda Smith and Amarillo criminal defense attorney Steven Michael Denny.
Voters will decide the 320th District Judge race on March 6th. Early voting is now open.
