As the primary approaches, I wanted to reach out to Bartholomew County citizens regarding the judge’s race. My wife has worked with Judge Kitty Coriden in different capacities for nearly 30 years. Over those years, my wife and I have known her not only as a friend, but as a caring mother, grandmother and wife; a devoted attorney; and a fair judge. In every area of her life the one word that is common is integrity. If you look up the word integrity in the dictionary, the definition describes Coriden perfectly: the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
As you consider who you want holding the high honor of judge, I am sure you would want the person who doesn’t take the job lightly, but considers all the facts before making a fair judgment. Another important aspect to consider is the efficiency with which the court is operated. Under Coriden’s leadership, Superior Court 2 has a budget of just over $400,000 while being able to return to the state, county and local municipalities nearly $2 million last year alone. This revenue is generated through court costs, traffic tickets and other legal fees.
