Sources tell KFDM Audwin Samuel to run for judge
JEFFERSON COUNTY - Sources tell KFDM News Beaumont City Councilman Audwin Samuel is planning to run for judge.
Those sources say Samuel plans to run for County Court at Law #3. Judge John Paul Davis is retiring from the position.
Sources tell us Samuel had thought about running since Davis announced he wouldn't seek re-election.
Sources say Samuel is expected to make his announcement Wednesday.
He's spent 30 years in public service. He was elected to the BISD school board in 1983 and was elected to Beaumont City Council in 1984. He left council in 1993 and was re-elected in 1999. He's served since then.
Samuel has been an attorney for 22 years.
