Rockford resident and legal activist Brian Downs is investigating running for a Kent County Circuit Court Judge position this Fall. Mr. Downs would most likely run against three incumbent judges since the the election process precludes running against only one judge. Mr. Downs stated that his reason for running for Judge are the numerous complaints concerning the two incumbent family court judges: Judge Daniel Zemaitis and Judge Kathleen Feeney. Both Judges are on the family court bench and are responsible for issues such as divorce, child custody, parenting time, adoptions, child removal, CPS actions and the like.
The election is November 4th, 2014. Mr. Downs must collect over 2,000 signatures to be placed on the ballot. Those interested in family court reform are encouraged to support Mr. Downs' campaign.
