Clemens gains bars’ backing for Roanoke judgeship

Salem lawyer Chris Clemens has garnered endorsements from three Roanoke-area bar groups for a general district judgeship that will open next year after the retirement of Judge Julian Raney, reports the Roanoke Times.

The Roanoke Bar Association and the Salem/Roanoke County Bar Association have endorsed Clemens. The Roanoke Valley Chapter of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association found both Clemens and Roanoke Commonwealth’s Attorney Donald Caldwell to be “highly recommended.”

Nine candidates have expressed interest in the seat.
