State Sen. Julia Boseman has decided to run for district court judgeship, but her past is haunting her.
Boseman is no stranger to public service. She's served as a New Hanover County Commissioner and then as a State Senator. Both her public and private life have people questioning her qualifications.
The StarNews wrote an editorial saying her judgement may not be the best judgement. Boseman disagrees.
"Being an attorney, yeah I've certainly wanted to be a judge for a while," she said. "Just haven't had the opportunity, but since I'm leaving the General Assembly, I thought this would be a good time to give it a run.
"I always try to be open and honest with the folks here and fair, and I'll be a very fair judge."
This is a newly created judgeship that's never been filled. Wilmington attorney Chad Hogston is also running for the seat.
