INTERVIEW Gregory Nicholas Seeks 2nd Term As Presiding Circuit Judge

The Honorable Gregory A. Nicholas is the first-term 32nd Presiding Judge serving all of Cullman County. He served as District Judge before becoming Cullman County’s Presiding Judge.

Judge Nicholas filed his election qualifying paperwork on Monday. He will be seeking re-election as Circuit Judge for another six-year term.

In this interview, we ask the Judge to provide a self-assessment on his first term in office, and – if re-elected – what his plan and goals will be for a second term.
