The filing period for judicial races ended on Friday, June 29th. I am both pleased and humbled to report that I do not have opposition to my candidacy for Superior Court in the newly created District 26H. I look forward to joining the Superior Court Bench following the November election.
The support of both lawyers and citizens of this community were the key to our success. I also have the best campaign team around in TeamTrosch. Thank you all for putting your trust in me. I promise to always remember the many giants upon whose shoulders I stand and pledge to do everything in my power to help move the arc of history towards justice for all.
WHY I'M RUNNING
WHY I'M RUNNING
I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Superior Court in the 26th Judicial District of North Carolina. Specifically, I seek to replace Judge Hugh Lewis, who is retiring after many years of distinguished service on the bench. I am running for Superior Court because I am committed to maintaining an independent judiciary and courtrooms where fairness, mercy, and the rule of law are paramount. I will also continue to utilize my judicial leadership both within and outside of the courtroom to improve the justice system for all citizens. Over the last 19 years as a District Court Judge, I have demonstrated that I am well qualified to carry out these tasks.
As an experienced Jurist, I have presided in all types of cases across all courtrooms and been honored for excellence by my colleagues in the NC Association of District Court Judges with the inaugural North Carolina’s Distinguished Judge Award. Further, I have worked collaboratively with other stakeholders to bring new initiatives to Mecklenburg County that promote justice, increase efficiency, and reduce costs. For example, as Co-Chair of our nationally recognized Race Matters for Juvenile Justice Initiative, I have been able to lead local, state and national efforts to reduce disparate court outcomes for children and families of color in our juvenile justice system.
I intend to bring this same approach to Superior Court, along with a promise that my decisions will be grounded in the law and always impartially made. An independent judiciary with experienced Judges is critical to our system of government. I am honored and humbled to be a part of the judiciary and remain dedicated to our legal system. I ask for your vote and for your support in my candidacy for Superior Court in the 26th Judicial District of North Carolina, District B.
Very truly yours,
Judge Lou Trosch
