CARTERVILLE, IL – Williamson County native, Judge James "Randy" Moore emerged as the top vote-getter by slight margin during the recent Primary Election on March 15. Having garnered more than 100,000 votes district-wide, the Justice is looking forward to traveling the massive district to get out his message of common-sense jurisprudence.
Judge Moore is currently serving as the assigned Justice to the 5th District Appellate Court in Mt. Vernon. The Judge announced his campaign on Oct. 13 for the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice James Wexstten.
Judge Moore's campaign is being chaired by State Sen. Dave Luechtefeld (R-Okawville).
Judge Moore was elected in 2008 and most recently retained in 2014 to the deep southern Illinois First Circuit Court based in Marion. The Judge has also enjoyed the confidence of the Illinois Supreme Court after he was appointed to the First Circuit in 2007, prior to his election in 2008. Most recently, Judge Moore was assigned to the Appellate bench by the seven-member Illinois Supreme Court on January 2, 2015 — the position he currently holds.
