The guest speaker for the Etowah County Republican Breakfast (ECRB) THIS SATURDAY (2-17-18) is Debra H. Jones, a candidate for the Alabama Supreme Court. Debra H. Jones, Circuit Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit, Calhoun and Cleburne Counties, has qualified to be a Republican candidate for Associate Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Place #1.
Judge Jones says, “I strictly apply the constitutions of Alabama and of the United States. In my courtroom, everyone is treated fairly and equally, with dignity and respect.” For years special interests have spent millions of dollars on judicial races in an attempt to elect their candidates to Alabama’s appellate courts. Judge Jones states, “From the trial lawyers to big business, the pendulum has swung from one extreme of justices to the other. It’s not about the pendulum. It’s about the plumb line. Right is right and wrong is wrong.”
Judge Jones is a graduate of The University of Alabama and the Cumberland School of Law where she served on a law review. She began her legal career in Calhoun County as an Assistant District Attorney. She co-founded the Calhoun Cleburne Children’s Advocacy Center. She has been involved in many civic organizations and outreach ministries and founded a faith-based domestic violence shelter which she owned and operated for years.

The meeting is held at the Western Sizzlin’ Restaurant in Rainbow City each third Saturday of the month. The meeting will be held in the back dining room.
