Elect Karen H. Jackson

Circuit Judge 2016 - 19th Circuit
Why Karen?


Dear Friend,

It wasn't very long after relocating to Prattville with my two children in 2003 that others began asking me to consider serving as an elected official. Now that my son is soon to be a high school senior, the time is right for me to seek the job as your Circuit Judge for Autauga, Elmore, and Chilton Counties.

As a practicing attorney of 13 years and a certified public accountant for more than 25 years, I understand the importance of having a fair and independent judiciary for all that become involved with the courts. A judge's ability to make decisions, in fairness and without undue influence, is absolutely essential for our courts to work as they are intended to do. It is only by having a fair and independent judiciary that we can have confidence in our legal system. Without these fundamental basics, court decisions taken on appeal can be costly to all those involved and to us as taxpayers.

We cannot afford to have a court system that plays favorites! If our courts’ decisions are had with personal gain or political clout, then "Justice for All" becomes just words without meaning. A more balanced, highly capable, and diverse judiciary will be able to recognize and eliminate the personal, cultural, and institutional discrimination that creates and sustains privileges for some people while causing disadvantages to others.

When I have the privilege of serving as Circuit Judge, I will adamantly strive to make decisions that are based on the facts and the law. Regardless of religious status, gender, geographical location, educational background, race, income status, class, age, political affiliations, personal status, business status, and of whether the participant is a plaintiff, victim, defendant, legal counsel, or prosecutor, I will carry out the duties of the office and oversee the administration of the court’s business in a fair and independent manner.

We have to have outstanding stewardship of our tax dollars so we can afford the court services needed by the community. With the economy restricting the financial resources to run our court system, we need a strong willingness to do things differently to achieve success. In order to succeed, we have to make necessary changes to keep up with the economically challenging times. Furthermore, we have to engage highly capable and motivated people to carry out the plans to trim the finances, prevent waste, fraud, and abuse, so that the duties of the court can be carried out most efficiently and effectively.

After many years of consideration, I am an independent candidate seeking to be your Circuit Judge for our tri-county community. It is my desire to bring different professional experiences, personal qualities, and different perspectives to the operations of our circuit court. It is my goal to have others, who become involved with our court system, able to recognize that we are working for a better, stronger, no-nonsense judiciary. We have been spreading the word since April of last year by interviewing registered voters and collecting their signatures for our petition requesting that Karen H. Jackson be named on the November 8th, 2016 General Election ballot. The petition has been welcomed and signed by many voters who believe that I propose a positive change for Autauga, Elmore and Chilton Counties. While speaking with them, the voters were most interested to know about my personal faith in God and to be assured that my moral compass comes from the Holy Bible. And secondly, the voters were most interested in the fact that I do not lean towards one political label or another. I am standing upright as your independent candidate.

When elected, I will strive to make well informed rational decisions in operating the circuit court effectively and efficiently. When we win this election, we will have a stronger and more balanced judiciary for the 19th Circuit.

The 2016 general election is an open door for me, as your independent candidate, to seek the job of Circuit Judge. By stepping through that door, the voters of Autauga, Elmore, and Chilton Counties are given a choice of candidates for the first time in many, many years. On November 8th, 2016, I hope that they and you will step through that door with me by making a difference with your vote for Karen H. Jackson. Together, we will be creating a greater, stronger, balanced judiciary for Autauga, Elmore, and Chilton Counties. I would be honored to serve the community as your Circuit Judge. Let's vote independent for positive change!

With best regards, I am sincerely

Karen H. Jackson
