“County court judges in the United States who can proudly take on the critical role for nearly two decades - all without being hounded by controversies and successfully hurdling racial obstacles - are a rarity. The Honorable Teretha Lundy Thomas personifies just that,” states ReElectJudgeTThomas.com, a site dedicated to call the re elect of Judge Teretha Lundy Thomas.
In a recent article from the Miami Herald, Judge Thomas’ has earned respect and high admiration over the years. The article from the Miami Herald recommends Judge Teretha Lundy Thomas, speaking highly of how she handled thousands of cases of all types - ranging from criminal misdemeanors to traffic cases including DUI, to small claims to domestic violence to civil injunctions, and everything in between.
"It speaks to Judge Thomas' record in the courtroom that, through three reelection cycles, she wasn't challenged. In 2012, she more than deserves to be reelected. She's a good judge and good for Miami-Dade County," says the Miami Herald Editorial Staff.nj
ReElectJudgeTThomas.com is aims to bring to light the call to re elect Teretha Lundy Thomas. Unchallenged in her stature as a Miami-Dade County Court Group 33 Judge for 19 years, Judge Thomas has drawn a challenger for the first time.
“She is professional in demeanor and performance and defines her job as one of “seeking the truth.” That’s why it’s disheartening to see a competent minority judge be challenged in a retention election,” adds the Miami Herald Editorial Staff. “Black female judges are in very short supply in Florida state courts. In many cases, after they’re elected or, more often, appointed, they almost always are challenged in the next election. Many lose, wrongly, because of ethnocentric voting habits.”
A highlight to her long list of accolades as an esteemed county judge, Judge Thomas holds the distinction of being the first African-American female Administrative Judge in the 11th Judicial Circuit. She is admitted to practice in the state of Florida, the trial bar of the Southern District of Florida and before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Thomas is a Miami native who is a proud graduate of the Class of 1972, Miami Jackson Senior High. Voted "Most Likely to Succeed" by her senior class, she attended The University of Chicago and graduated from Brown University. After Brown, she worked for the U.S. Postal Service, along with her retired soldier-father, and sister, and then applied to law school. She was accepted at the University of Miami and University of Florida and chose to remain in her beloved hometown.
