NASHVILLE, TN — Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel Tillman W. Payne, III will seek the office of General Sessions Judge – Division X in the 2018 election cycle. Tillman Payne is a former public defender, businessman, and attorney for nearly 20 years.
Tillman Payne recently spoke at the Davidson County Democratic Party event, A Better Deal for Nashville Rally:
“I’ve been practicing law almost 20 years and during part of that time I was an assistant public defender. The inability to pay fines and court costs should not dictate the quality of justice a person receives. We need to help people get their lives back on track and I am committed as Judge to keep working in the community to tackle the root causes that push so many people into the Judicial System while doing all we can to make victims whole.”
Tillman Payne will host his official kick off Thursday, January 18, 2018, at 5pm-8pm at The Vault Nashville Event Center (822 3rd Ave S Nashville, TN 37210).
Tillman earned his B.S. from the University of Tennessee Knoxville and Masters in Human Relations (MHR) from the University of Oklahoma. He earned his Law degree from the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University in Arlington VA. He and his wife Kimberly have two sons.
The election will be held May 1, 2018.
