Spaight for Judge

Elect Edward Spaight for
Circuit Judge, Fifth Judicial Circuit

Edward is running for Judge of the Fifth Judicial Circuit, which covers Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion, and Sumter Counties.  The seat is coming open as a result of the retirement of Circuit Court Judge Patricia Thomas, who has served the people of Citrus County and the Fifth Judicial Circuit with distinction and honor for over twenty-five years.

"I entered the race for Circuit Judge of the Fifth Judicial Circuit because I believe that I'm in tune with the people," Ed said.  "I promise that I will work hard to continue the tradition of providing justice and ensuring fairness in the Fifth Judicial Circuit"



I am proud to endorse Edward Spaight for Circuit Court Judge.  As my Chief Assistant, Edward has done tremendous work on behalf of the citizens of Citrus County.  He has proudly defended the Constitution while earning the respect of our clients, law enforcement and the legal community.  Edward's courtroom experience as well as his background in family, civil and corporate law, in addition to criminal law, give him the solid foundation we need in our judiciary.  The people of Citrus, Hernando, Marion, Sumter and Lake Counties will be well served when Edward Spaight becomes our next Circuit Court Judge.

Mike Graves, Public Defender, 5th Judicial Circuit

We are especially interested in seeing Edward Spaight be selected as judge. Edward shares our values. As a man of respect for the law and for others, and as one who is truly concerned about the community he serves, he will make a superb circuit judge!  

Wanda Kohn - Director, Pregnancy & Family Care Center, Leesburg

"Edward is is a rule of law person and not a supporter of judicially creating new laws.  He is a sound family man, he is an active resident of Citrus County and understands our issues.  His values on the law are in line with what I believe are needed and his understanding of the appropriate aspect of the duties of people in the judicial system will insure the people who stand before him will be treated according to the true intent of our founding fathers.
