Do you have particular concerns about the Mecklenburg judicial system?
If so, plan to attend a public forum Tuesday where four judges will accept questions and discuss challenges facing our local courts.
The event is sponsored by the Urban League Guild, Democracy North Carolina and Generation Engage and is hosted by the Urban League of the Central Carolinas.
Austin Roper, president of the Urban League Guild, said the event is part of the guild’s annual voter education effort and is nonpartisan.
“It not my position to limit the conversation,” he said. “The judges will convey to us their concerns about the judicial system, and hopefully we will convey to the judged our concerns about the judicial system.”
Roper said topics likely will include how judicial campaigns are financed and executed.
The four judges scheduled to participate are:
Superior Court Judge Yvonne Mims-Evans
District Court Judge Hugh B. Lewis
District Court Judge Charlotte Brown-Williams
District Court Kudge Kimberly Best
