The Valdosta Daily Times
Jason Cain, 48, has reached out to The Times to announce his candidacy for Superior Court Judge.
Cain said his background qualifies him for the position because he has been practicing law for approximately 20 years; he has previously served as a juvenile court judge, an assistant District Attorney, and he is currently an Assistant Public Defender.
“I have plenty of trial experience, and I have been in the profession for about 20 years,” Cain said. “My goal as a Superior Court Judge would be to be the best Judge that I could be, and that would include fairness to all parties before me in the court room.”
Cain said his judicial philosophy stems from an experience he encountered early on during his career.
“My first job out of law school was working as a juvenile court judge, and in that capacity I worked for three or four older judges. And I believe that has kind of shaped my judicial philosophy.”
He sought advice from his superiors on a case that dealt with child deprivation, about removing children from a home.
“And I was speaking with my boss about that situation, trying to get some guidance, and he told me, 'Listen. Let me tell you something. When you go through situations like this, just do the right thing, and if you do that the law will follow you,'” Cain recalled.
Cain vows to look at the big picture and make decisions based on the right thing to do under the circumstances pertaining to each individual case.
Jason Cain will be running for Superior Court Judge in the Southern Judicial circuit.
