Wednesday, former Jefferson County Circuit Judge Peyton C. “Pat” Thetford announced his candidacy for Place 1 on the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals.
Thetford has qualified for the seat currently held by Judge Craig Pittman. Pittman has announced he will not seek re-election.
“I believe that my background of having over 27 years of experience as a civil lawyer and Civil Circuit Judge makes me uniquely qualified to serve as an Appellate Judge on the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals,” Thetford said. “If elected, I will bring vast experience and conservative values to the court. I will work hard to administer justice fairly and equitably, but always grounded in the rule of law.”
