John Michael Guidry is a Judge at the First Circuit Court of
Appeal. He has been there more than 20 years and says in part that is why
he should be elected to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
Guidry was the leader in
the primary election on Tuesday getting 28 percent of the vote. He credits his
service to the community as one reason he was the leader in an eight person race.
"I've shared with the community that God can be the glory
for things that he has done," says Guidry who is deeply religious. He says he
will stay the course during the run-off. "I'm asking individuals to stay with
me to complete the task," says Guidry. "I'm just asking everybody to continue
to pray, continue to work, continue to talk to their friends, neighbors and we
are going to be victorious on December 8th."
Guidry, a Democrat, says in this race he does not believe
party affiliation will be an issue that will sway voters in either direction.
"I believe party affiliation is really not going to matter because at the end
of the day people are looking for a judge that is going to be fair," says
He also believes the race will, as in the primary, be a
clean one. "It's not going to go negative on my part," says Guidry. "God has
blessed me too much to go negative."
Guidry says he is in favor of cameras in district court
