Circuit Judge, Sixth Judicial District, Fifth Division
Little Rock, Arkansas

June 4, 2015


Arkansas will hold its 2016 primary election on March 1, 2016.  I am writing to let you know I will seek re-election as Circuit Judge for the Sixth Judicial District, Fifth Division, during the non-partisan judicial primary on that date and to ask for your votes.

I became a lawyer because I believe in justice.  Dedication to justice has been the hallmark of my work as a lawyer in private practice at the Wright, Lindsey and Jennings law firm, as Chairman of the Workers’ Compensation Commission, as a judge on the Arkansas Court of Appeals, as a visiting professor of law at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Bowen School of Law, and as a Circuit Judge.  My life and legal career has been devoted to upholding the values of liberty, equality, and respect for the dignity of all persons.  As I said the day I took office in 2011, “justice is a verb!”

I’m asking now for you to vote for my re-election as Circuit Judge next year.  In the meantime, I need your help spreading the news that I am seeking re-election, that I am asking for your votes, and that my re-election campaign will continue during the coming months.

My re-election campaign, led by my friends Graham Catlett, Valerie Pruitt, and Donell Meadows, will begin accepting contributions in September of this year.  However, we are already doing other re-election work and welcome your help.  Please email us at,,, or to become part of the re-election team.   We’ll also be posting campaign updates on the Wendell Griffen for Circuit Judge Facebook page that was set up for my 2010 election.

Thanks for reading this message.  Please pass the word.
