Swearing In Ceremony

Historic Appointment, May 18, 2018
As you can see, I laughed in response to remarks of my Chief, Judge Galen Braddy. But I also cried tears of joy on this special day. Not only was my appointment as district court judge an historic appointment for Pitt County, but it was a tremendous honor for me. I spent 34 years as an attorney working and preparing for this moment. It is the pinnacle moment of my career. I am now campaigning to keep this job, which is for me a calling to serve. For those of you who do not know me, I welcome you to visit my courtroom. I know this seat does not belong to me but to the people of PittCounty. I am working hard every day to earn your respect and support.
Remarks by Judge Gwyn Hilburn
