(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Chad Gaddie announced he will run for Associate Circuit Judge of Division Six in Buchanan County.

Gaddie has served as an attorney in Northwest Missouri for 15 years.

He said Division Six holds a special place in his heart. He had his first jury trial in that courtroom before graduating from law school.

Gaddie said he is excited for a chance to serve his hometown in a different way.

"The associate handles both criminal and civil cases, and I have a background as both a criminal prosecutor, a criminal defense lawyer, and also, I've represented clients on both sides of civil cases," said Gaddie.

Gaddie will run as a Democrat.

The primary election is August 5.
