The Committee to Elect Emily Matson announces Emily Matson has qualified to run for judge of the Superior Court, Rome Judicial Circuit. Emily is seeking to replace retiring Judge Tambra P. Colston, whose term will end in December.

A lifelong Roman, Emily practices law with her husband, Patrick Matson, at Matson and Matson, P.C.

“Since announcing my intent to run last summer, my passion to serve in this position has only increased," she said. "As we are faced with increasing unconscionable human choices and chaos in our communities, I hope to serve as a solid leader and decision-maker in our local court."

Qualifying ends Friday. The seat will be filled following the nonpartisan election held on May 22.
