TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Tippecanoe Superior Court Four has a new candidate on the ballot for judge.
Republican Kimberly Wright announced her candidacy Wednesday evening in front of a crowd at the Knickerbocker.
Wright currently serves as a legal practitioner; something she has done for more than 20 years.
She's also a federal trustee and fills in as a public defender.
She graduated from Tri-County High School and received her law degree from Valparaiso University.
Superior Court four tends to handle landlord and tenant cases, small claims cases, and misdemeanor or D felony drug cases.
Wright said that suits her personal history.
"I grew up in a simple community, in a simple family," said Wright. "I have relatability to people who are in distress, people in financial distress.
That same court also has a candidate on the Democratic ticket now.
Matthew Boulac announced his candidacy by email Wednesday afternoon.
His campaign will formally launch on Feb. 13th at 5:30 p.m. at the Tippecanoe County Democratic Headquarters.
