Congratulations to Tracie Cason, former Glance Gwinnett Co-Chair, who was elected Superior Court Judge. Cason won with 61.14 percent of the vote. Cason, who has spent the last 21 years as a prosecutor, most recently as Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney for the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office, said she was “humbled” by the win.

“I want to get out into the community and demystify the system and make sure that our citizens know that the system is there for them and will treat them with respect and dignity and give them an opportunity to be heard,” she said. “I have dedicated my entire career to protecting our community and making sure that we are safe and strong. I have further concentrated my career on protecting our children. I want to continue to make sure that the most vulnerable among us are kept safe- whether that’s in the criminal system or the civil system.”
