State Court Solicitor General Kevin S. Cauley told The Messenger this week he will seek election to his first full four-year term as the chief prosecutor in the State Court of Grady County.
Cauley was appointed solicitor in Aug. 1, 2008, by Governor Sonny Perdue to fill the unexpired term of Superior Court Judge J. Kevin Chason.
“I enjoy the privilege of serving Grady County as solicitor. The prosecution of misdemeanor crimes is a responsibility that should not be taken lightly. It not only serves as protection of our community, but can also serve as a deterrent for the commission of more serious crimes when the system truly works,” Cauley said.
Cauley has practiced law here since 1997 and, in March 2008, he opened his own law firm, which is located at 732 N. Broad Street, Suite B, inside the Richter & Company building.
In addition to his service in State Court, Cauley also serves as the county attorney for the Grady County Board of Commissioners and as the solicitor general for the Juvenile Court of Grady County, a post he has held for almost a decade.
Kevin S. Cauley is the past chairman of the Cairo-Grady County Chamber of Commerce, and he currently seats on the board of directors of Ameris Bank – Cairo and the Grady County Public Education Endowment Board.
He and his wife, Raina, are the parents of Grace and Ava and the Cauleys are active members of Cairo First United Methodist Church.
Cauley is also a member and past president of the Cairo Kiwanis Club.
“I would appreciate your vote and support in allowing me to continue my service as the solicitor general of the State Court of Grady County,” Cauley said.
Other local elected offices up for election this year in addition to Solicitor General are State Court Judge and District 2 and 5 members of both the Grady County Board of Commissioners and the Board of Education.
Qualifying for elected offices opens Monday, April 26, at 9 a.m. and will close out on Friday, April 30, at noon.
