Hayes seeking
as district judge

Lawrence County District Judge Larry Hayes, age 60, has announced that he is seeking re-election to the position. During his career in Lawrence County, Hayes has had a private law practice and has served as a juvenile referee, deputy prosecuter and a city attorney. During the last several years, he has served solely as district judge.

Hayes graduated from Arkansas State University with honors and received his law degree from the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville. Except for a few months following graduation, Hayes' entire legal career has been in Lawrence County.

Several years ago, when the governor appointed him judge, he told Hayes that his position would be at district level "where the rubber meets the highway," said Hayes, adding, "How right he was then and especially now."

"My appointment as judge did not happen in a vacuum," Hayes said. "Many good people in Lawrence County came together and asked the governor to put me in office. Through the years, I have always taken very seriously the confidence placed in me and have worked hard to keep current and be a fair and impartial judge."

"Since my appointment," he added, "much change has and is taking place in the district courts. I look forward to serving another term and doing my part to keep Lawrence County a good community."

Judge Hayes is married to Carolyn Hayes, former circuit clerk and lifelong resident of Lawrence County. She is now serving as city clerk of Walnut Ridge.
