Demetra Robinson said Tuesday morning that she has filed the necessary paperwork declaring herself as a candidate for the position of Hopkins County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace.
“Over the past 13 years, I have served as the municipal court judge for the city of Commerce, and for the past five years I served as the municipal judge for the city of Como,” she said. “Although grateful for the opportunities provided elsewhere, Hopkins County is my home. I was born here. I'm a 1985 graduate of Sulphur Springs High School. My husband, John ‘Bubba’ Robinson, graduated from Como-Pickton. We've been very blessed with five children and nine grandchildren.”
Robinson's parents are the Rev. Dave and Joyce (Epting-Clewis) Young and her grandparents are the late Preston and Jessie Mae (Lewis) Epting.
“They were both raised here, in the St. Luke and East Caney communities,” she said. “My grandfather was a self employed concrete contractor, my grandmother a nurse at Hopkins County Memorial.
Robinson and her husband attend Greater Emmanuel Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs, where her father is the pastor. Her husband serves as a deacon and she serves as an associate minister as well as on the praise and worship team.
Robinson said she is an experienced judge with 13 years of experience with a track record of being fair, balanced and concerned with local community values.
“It is my belief that through my varied experience, God has prepared me for such a time as this,” she said.
