Election Day is November 8, 2022

In 2018, Julie ran for District Court with the slogan "more than a name." Julie ran to show that Louisville could elect a Judge based on more than just their last name and how much money they spend. And she did it. Julie Kaelin is more than a name. She kept the promises made in 2018, and brought positive changes to the District Court bench - ranging from more transparency to real progress on bail reform. Now she wants to do the same in Jefferson Circuit Court.


Julie is the only candidate in the race with experience in both criminal and civil practice in Circuit Court. Her first job out of law school was as a personal injury lawyer. She then went on to serve as a Public Defender for five years, before leaving to open her own private firm. In private practice, Julie continued to handle serious criminal cases, and also served of counsel to Hillerich & Bradsby Co., makers of Louisville Slugger products. There Julie worked on mass tort litigation and other business law. Julie has the experience necessary for Circuit Court, including having handled multiple death penalty cases and trials, as well as Probate cases. She also is the only candidate in this race with criminal, civil, probate, and judicial experience. 

The choice is clear: elect Judge Julie for Circuit Court.
