LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Laura Zeman announced her intention to run for judge in Superior Court 4 in Tippecanoe County Thursday night.
She said she was approached by people at the courthouse who urged her to run for the position.
Zeman is a former judge in Superior 5 and county deputy prosecutor.
She said she wants to bring new energy, strong organization and efficiency to the position, which handles small claims and misdemeanor cases.
“It may be a small claims court, but they’re certainly not small cases to these folks and they want them decided quickly,” said Zeman.
Zeman will run against incumbent Greg Donat in the Republican primary.
Donat has served as Superior 4 Judge since 1984.
