To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to Augusta Judicial Circuit District Attorney R. Ashley Wright on her recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Augusta Circuit, which covers Burke, Columbia and Richmond counties.

Judge Wright will be well served by her 20-plus years of experience in the legal profession, including her service as district attorney for the past nine years. She has also served on Georgia's Judicial Nominating Committee and Criminal Justice Reform Committee and as vice president of the District Attorneys' Association of Georgia.

Judge Wright's acceptance of this appointment demonstrates her commitment to serving the public and the justice system, and we wish her well in this new position of judicial leadership.

Patrick T. O'Connor

President, State Bar of Georgia
