Dailey announces bid for Div. 2 judge

TERRE HAUTE — Republican Chris Dailey has announced his candidacy for the 2014 election for judge of Vigo County Superior Court Division 2.

The court handles family law cases including custody, visitation and child support petitions and 60 percent of all divorce cases in the county. The court also handles civil matters, including guardianships, grandparents rights, estates and mental health cases.

Dailey briefly served as Terre Haute City Court Judge. He was appointed in 2006 by Gov. Mitch Daniels to fill the final year in 2007 of the unexpired term of Michael Lewis, who had been elected as judge for Vigo County Superior Court Division 6.

Dailey is currently in private practice, where he focuses on family law matters. He is a graduate of Wabash College and Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis, and a member of the Indiana and Terre Haute Bar associations.

In a press release, Dailey said he believes “an effective judge is one who is knowledgeable, experienced and impartial — patient, steady and calm, firm and compassionate — and one who is courteous to litigants, jurors, witnesses, lawyers, law enforcement, mental health professionals and others with whom a judge deals.”

Daily said, if elected, he “will work hard to ensure that cases and controversies coming before the court are handled expeditiously, fairly and impartially.”

Daily is married to his wife, Katie, an educator. The couple has three children — two sons and one daughter.
