DONNA LEIGEBER: Letter To The Editor


My name is Donna Leigeber. I was born and raised in Cullman, I began my career in 1973 working for Ruth Gasser and Circuit Judge Jack Riley. I retired from the court system as Judge Martha Williams’ Assistant in March 2017. During those four years, I became extremely familiar with Judge Williams on a personal and work ethic basis.

This campaign has been one of the ugliest I have seen in a long time. Mr. Hasting’s attempt to tarnish Judge Williams’ reputation as to her ethics and dedication to her job is unfounded. The allegations Mr. Hasting has leveled against Judge Williams are purely and simply without merit and untrue. I know Judge Williams to be honest, kind, and unwavering in her loyalty to the people of Cullman County. She spoke often of the responsibility she holds and how it affects peoples’ lives. She has said, “We see people on probably the worse days of their lives and it is our calling to try to help them as much as we can”. She takes great pride in the office she holds and would never do anything that would tarnish the Office of Circuit Judge or the stellar reputation she maintains herself.

In the four years that I worked for her, she resolved a backlog of more than 300 cases requiring orders and/or hearings on her court calendar, working 7 days a week, never complaining, and she has continued to strive to maintain a current court docket. She meets her challenges head first and headstrong. Every morning when she stepped through the door of her office she would greet me with the most wonderful smile which I always translated into “let’s get to work”.

Judge Williams is a Judge who has served you well and I am truly honored to have served as her Judicial Assistant for the last four years in my career. I was blessed to have been associated with her.

On June 5th, please vote and case that vote to re-elect Judge Martha Williams. Thank you and God Bless.

With all best wishes, I am sincerely yours,

Donna Leigeber
