On June 18, voters in Dougherty County will return to the polls to decide whether to elect Albany attorney Valerie Brown-Williams of Brown-Williams & Associates or Dougherty County Magistrate Court Judge Victoria Matu Johnson as Dougherty Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Willie E. Lockette’s full-time replacement.

In January, Lockette announced his intent to continue his judicial service in a part-time capacity after seven terms in office on the superior court bench.
