Long-serving judge seeks re-election

Judge Clarence Seeliger, one of the longest-serving jurists in DeKalb County, will seek another four years on the bench.

Seeliger, a DeKalb Superior Court judge for 28 years, said Friday that he will seek another term this year. "I am in good health, and I enjoy the work," he said.

In addition to presiding over murder and robbery cases and lawsuits, Seeliger served six years as chair of the State Commission on Family Violence. The Women's Resource Center of DeKalb, which operates a hotline and shelter for battered women, named a local award after him in 2008.
