Judge Elizabeth “Beth” Wolfe announces her candidacy for the First Circuit Court of Appeal Division “D,” a seat presently held by Judge Will Crain, who was recently elected as a justice to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
Wolfe says, “The First Circuit Court of Appeal requires a broad range of knowledge involving particular legal issues and cases that can only truly be appreciated by the kind
of experience that I have attained over the past 32 years of my professional career. I worked both in private practice and as an Assistant District Attorney for 18 years and have served as a district judge for the past 14.5 years. As a general jurisdiction judge I handle everything from traffic charges to first degree murder. The wide range of cases over which I preside affords me unique insight and experience, covering every aspect of the law. This is precisely what I will bring to the First Circuit Court of Appeal if elected. I ask that you honor me with your vote and allow me to continue to serve you.”
Judge Wolfe is a Republican. She and her husband live in Albany and have four children, six grandchildren and one great grandson.
The First Circuit Court of Appeal includes St. Tammany, Washington, Tangipahoa, Livingston, St. Helena, East Feliciana and West Feliciana Parishes.
The election is set for April of 2020.
