Dear Citizens of Davidson County,
  Thank you for visiting my campaign for re-election website. I am pleased to announce my re-election campaign for Davidson County General Sessions Judge, Division VIII (8). As your judge, I pledge to continue upholding the law, protecting the public, enforcing the rights of crime victims and holding those that break the law accountable. I am patient, compassionate, understanding and I pledge to continue balancing these traits with the rule of law to render justice to all.

It has been a great privilege and fulfillment of a life’s dream to serve the citizens of Davidson County as one of your judges. I want to continue the opportunity to apply my many life and legal experiences in this important public service.

Every day, I strive to live a life of principles that have been instilled by my family, my community and my country. Guiding principles of education, strong work ethics and dedication define the true essence of my public service and they led me to a career in law and later inspired me to fulfill my aspiration to be elected to the bench. These basic principles molded my commitment to always see that justice is afforded to ALL. I believe justice requires fairness and justice can only be served without prejudice towards race, gender, nationality, religion, economic status, or sexual orientation.

When I was elected in 2012 as Davidson County General Sessions Judge, Division VIII, I transitioned more than 200 cases from my private practice in the early months. I knew then that I wanted to continue to serve the community. With my first year behind me and the transition complete, I look forward to pursuing a second term on the bench. I humbly ask for your prayers and support as we start our campaign and I seek re-election. On Tuesday, May 6, 2014, Davidson County will hold the Democratic Primary Election. Please support me as we Ring the BELL for Justice again. Your vote and involvement in my campaign will enable me to continue the progress I have achieved thus far. I am grateful for your on-going support so that I may continue my service as your Davidson County General Sessions Judge, Division VIII (8).

We have terrific opportunities for you to become involved and welcome you to learn more about the campaign by exploring other pages on this site. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus and YouTube to keep pace with the campaign. We will have weekly updates and encourage you to stay connected.

I respectfully ask for your vote and to keep ringing the BELL for Justice!!!

Your public servant,

Judge Rachel L. Bell
Davidson County
General Sessions, Division VIII (8)
