Crevitt is candidate for district court judge

Published 12:00 am Sunday, September 27, 2009

Jeffrey Crevitt has announced his candidacy for Southern District Justice Court judge of Warren County in the Nov. 3 special election.

Crevitt, 46, is opposed by attorney and former Circuit Court administrator Lisa Anglin Counts and Sheffield Rentals employee Sally Sheffield McDaniel for the position held by Crevitt since his appointment in July after the death of his father, Joe Crevitt, who held the seat for 12 years. Warren County has three justice court districts.

Crevitt, a lifelong resident of the district and 1981 Warren Central High School graduate, bases his candidacy on qualifications and experience in the court systems and law.
