JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) - Don Arnold announced today that he will run for a full term as General Sessions Court Judge, Part III for Washington County. Arnold has held the position since January 3, 2013 when he was appointed to serve by the Washington County Commission until the next election.

Arnold has been instrumental in the formation of the new Drug Court and serves as Presiding Judge. Arnold said, “I hope to be elected to continue my work with the new Drug Court offering hope for a fresh start to non-violent offenders with addiction problems.”

Arnold's campaign slogan is “Experience That Can Do Justice.” In addition to serving in the position for the past 15 months, he has previously been an assistant district attorney general and was appointed by Governor Sundquist as a Special Justice on the Tennessee Supreme Court. Arnold was also appointed by the Tennessee Supreme Court to help advise on the adoption of new rules for civil and criminal procedure.

For 35 years, Arnold has received the highest possible peer-review rating in “legal ability and ethical standards,” AV Preeminent, by Martindale Hubbel, the leading rating publication for lawyers.

Arnold's public service includes serving as Mayor of Johnson City and 4 years in the Tennessee State Senate where he was elected Minority Caucus Chairman and was appointed Vice Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, a key post in the drafting and passage of all civil and criminal legislation.

He and his wife Linda are members of Central Baptist Church and have three children and six grandchildren.
