Cowan for District Court JudgePublished 10:08am Friday, October 19, 2012
I’m writing you to ask that as you head out to vote in the coming weeks, you consider voting for Emily Cowan for District Court Judge, District 29B. Emily is running for an open seat, previously held by Judge Fox.
Emily understands the court system and the role it plays in the lives of so many families in our region.
She worked for six years as an assistant district attorney in Henderson, Polk and Transylvania Counties, and upon going into private practice, took up the charge to advocate on behalf of those who can’t do so for themselves.
For the past three years Emily has worked as a Guardian ad Litem attorney (child advocate) for Polk and Transylvania counties.
Emily knows and understands the role of law enforcement.
She completed federal level basic law enforcement training prior to becoming a prosecutor and is an instructor at Blue Ridge Community College, where she teaches the basic law enforcement class, helping to prepare many of our law enforcement for their work ahead.
As a mom of three, a volunteer on the Mainstay Board, an accomplished prosecutor, and an advocate for victims who find themselves in our legal system, I see no better choice for this seat than Emily Cowan.
Please vote for Emily Cowan for District Court Judge.
