Jefferson County Circuit Judge Mac Parsons says he’s going to run for the Alabama Supreme Court next year as a Democrat. But it appears he hasn’t decided which of the three races he will enter. As mentioned above, three seats on the Court are up for election next year. In addition to Justice Mike Bolin, Justice Tom Parker is seeking re-election. Justice Patti Smith has apparently decided not to run again. Judge Parsons, who is in his second six-year term as a circuit judge, is the first Democrat to announce. Based in Bessemer, Judge Parsons has handled a number of high-profile cases. Before becoming a judge, he served 16 years in the State Senate.
According to State Democratic Party Chairman Joe Turnham, at least two other circuit judges and a prominent Birmingham lawyer are considering running for the Court as Democrats. I believe there will be several other candidates in all three of these races – both Republicans and Democrats – before qualifying time. Based on what court-watchers are saying, there will be some very strong candidates in each race.
