McClendon Vying To Be First Black Superior Court Judge of Dublin Judicial Circuit

History could be made over in Laurens County next Tuesday where Harold McLendon, a African-American is challenging Jon Helton, a Nathan Deal appointee for Superior Court Judge in the Dublin Judicial Circuit of the 8th District. The circuit includes Johnson, Laurens, Treutlen and Twiggs County. Helton was appointed by Nathan Deal to the seat after Judge J. Stanley Smith resigned. No African-American has ever held a seat on the Dublin Judicial Circuit.

McLendon has significant support in both the Black & White Community and he has a really great shot at becoming the next Superior Court Judge for the Dublin Circuit

McLendon was born & raised in Dublin, married for 32 years & has 5 children. McLendon is a graduate of Columbus College, '77 where he obtained a B.S. Degree & then attended the Woodrow Wilson School of Law, '81. He has been a Associate Juvenile Judge, Assistant D.A. Public Defender, Dublin Bar President, Trial Attorney for 28 years.

His motto is Elect Experience, Elect Integrity, Elect Harold McLendon Superior Court Judge.
