East Ridge City Judge Arvin Reingold is seeking a new eight-year term as judge.
He said, "I've enjoyed my service on the bench. It's important that people see the face of justice."
Judge Reingold said most people have their experience with the justice system in the lower courts.
He will have opposition from attorneys Ryan Hanzelik and Cris Helton, a former city attorney for East Ridge.
Judge Reingold has been an attorney since 1957.
He went on the bench in 2002 by appointment from the East Ridge City Commission after longtime Judge Bill Luther retired.
