Currie Mingledorff of Winder was the lone qualifier for the office of Piedmont Superior Court Judge, securing the seat without a contested election.
“I am excited and eager to begin doing the important work this office requires,” Mingledorff said. “I believe entering this position without an opponent is a clear statement that residents approved of my qualifications. Now it’s time to get busy and get to work for them.”
Mingledorff will fill the seat being vacated by retiring Judge Robert Adamson.
A former county attorney for Barrow, Mingledorff has over 21 years of legal experience. He has also worked with organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America and The Tree House – a nonprofit organization supporting families and serving abused children in the Piedmont Judicial Circuit.
Mingledorff and his wife of 26 years, ViAnn, have many long-time connections with Jackson County through ViAnn’s family. Her father, the late Doyle Johnson, operated a dairy farm on Highway 334 during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.
The Mingledorffs have been married for 26 years.
