Alabama Supreme Court Justice Sarah Stewart has received the endorsements of 23 Republican District Attorneys from across the state in her effort to be the next Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. 

“I am honored to have the support of these law enforcement leaders,” Justice Stewart said. “District Attorneys are charged with keeping our communities safe and they know that I have been a trusted partner in protecting the rights of victims and delivering justice in my courtroom. Our district attorneys know that my proven conservative judicial leadership is right for Alabama.” 

The list of those endorsing Justice Sarah Stewart for Chief Justice includes Keith Blackwood, Mobile; Rob Broussard, Madison; Matt Casey, Shelby; Bob Wilters, Baldwin; Hays Webb, Tuscaloosa; Lynn Hammond, Calhoun; Lyle Harmon, St Clair; Jennifer Bray, Marshall; CJ Robinson, Elmore; Chris Connolly, Lauderdale; Summer Summerford, Dekalb and Cherokee; Steve Giddens, Talladega; Andy Hamlin, Pickens, Lamar, and Fayette; James Tarbox, Coffee and Pike; Steve Billy, Escambia; Stephen Winters, Clarke, Washington and Choctaw; Hal Hughston, Colbert; Billy Adair, Walker; Scott Anderson, Morgan; Jody Willoughby, Etowah; Mike Segrest, Chambers, Macon, Randolph and Tallapoosa; Russ Goodman, Henry and Houston; and Kirke Adams, Dale and Geneva counties. 

“Throughout my years of prosecuting cases in front of Judge Stewart, I saw firsthand how she was fair and fiercely followed the law,“ Mobile County DA Keith Blackwood stated. “When I prosecuted child-victim cases in front of her, I knew that if a defendant hurt a child and was convicted, Judge Stewart would sentence them to the maximum punishment that fit the circumstances.” 

Justice Sarah Stewart has nearly 20 years of judicial experience, including the last six years as a justice on the Alabama Supreme Court. She has a proven conservative judicial record and a reputation for being “tough on crime” and handing down long sentences to the worst criminals. 

“Her conservative and family-focused values have continued to be the driving force in her pursuit of justice,” Blackwood added. “I would encourage everyone to vote for Justice Sarah Stewart for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court on March 5th.”
