Dan Damman, the sole candidate running for Circuit Court Judge at this time, launched his campaign yesterday evening.
Born and raised in St. Clair, Damman has strong ties to the area. He graduated from St. Clair High School in 1994 and attended St. Clair County Community College before transferring to Michigan State University. He has his Juris Doctorate (JD) from Wayne State University Law School. Damman was the former Mayor of Marysville from 2013 to 2019 and also served on the city council there from 2011 to 2013.
He is currently a partner at Winston & Damman, PLLC, and specializes in Criminal Defense, Family Law, and Personal Injury, representing clients in St. Clair, Sanilac, Lapeer and Macomb Counties. Dan also served the County of St. Clair in the Representative Assembly of the State Bar of Michigan.
According to Michigan’s court information, “The circuit court is the trial court with the broadest powers in Michigan. In general, the circuit court handles all civil cases with claims of more than $25,000 and all felony criminal cases.” The vote for the circuit court judge will be on the November ballot. There is still time for individuals to file to run against Damman.
He has three more campaign events planned around St. Clair County to meet area residents. To learn more about the campaign or upcoming events, visit dandamman.com.
