Alabama Kitchen Sink Endorses First Ever Candidate: Don Colee for Circuit Court, Place 16 in Birmingham
An old family friend needs your vote if you live in Birmingham, Alabama. Don Colee is running as a Democrat for the Circuit Court, Place 16 judgeship. Don’s opponent was appointed last year by Republican Governor Bob Riley to fill a vacancy and is running for the first time. I don’t know much about her, but she can’t top Don. Don’s been both a prosecutor and a defense attorney during a 30-year legal profession. A story in the Birmingham News details Don’s qualifications. He’s experienced in the courtroom trenches, ethical, honest, hardworking and the kind of person who should be in a position like this. I don’t know what else matters, but he is one of the most respected and talented attorneys in the state. Martindale-Hubbell, a guide that rates lawyers, gives him an AV—with the A being a very high to preeminent rating and the V being a very high ethical rating. This is the best you can be. He’s experienced in everything from capital cases to misdemeanors. I can’t think his opponent has the extent of experience that he does. I hope you’ll give him consideration.
