At the end of the latest disclosure period, former State Bar president Ken Shigley maintained a lead in funds reported in his race for an open seat on the Georgia Court of Appeals. The only other candidate is former Democratic nominee for attorney general and president-elect of the State Bar, Ken Hodges.
Shigley has raised a total of more than $519,000, including $250,000 he loaned to his campaign, and has $441,000 cash on hand. Hodges reported receipt of contributions of $330,519.50 and cash on hand of $276,346.54.
“I’ve traveled across every region of Georgia during this campaign and held events in every major city,” Shigley said. “Voters want a judge who is qualified, experienced, impartial and committed to interpreting the law as written. I believe my long career representing a wide variety of clients in private practice has prepared me well for this public service, and I’m ready to contribute to the excellent Georgia justice system.”
