Jaimie Powell Horowitz Elected Judge in Oak Park's 45th District Court

Attorney Jaimie Powell Horowitz was elected to one of the two open judge seats in Oak Park's 45th District Court today. She beat her challenger, Brenda Richard, by earning 57% of the vote. In this role, her jurisdiction will include Oak Park, Royal Oak Township, Huntington Woods and Pleasant Ridge. She currently works as the special prosecutor for the Fair Michigan Justice Project, a nonprofit organization created in July 2016 to prosecute hate crimes against the LGBTQ community. She said that she will prioritize inclusivity and diversity in her judgeship.

"I am proud to be elected to serve the communities of the 45th Judicial District. We are fortunate to be a district that is inclusive, diverse and welcoming," Horowitz said via an email statement about her win. "I look forward to continuing to work to make our justice system more fair and equitable for all people."
