Muskogee County District Judge Bret Smith launched his re-election campaign last night at the Muskogee Country Club with accolades from lawyers and citizens praising him as fair and thoughtful.

Around 150 people attended the event, and Smith spoke about his passion for helping children and equal justice for everyone.

Smith was elected in 2018 and has seen the courthouse through several transitions and crises, including navigating the COVID-19 shutdowns while keeping court cases moving as much as possible during the crisis.
