District Attorney Marie Broder Announces Candidacy for District Attorney In Special Election On February 9, 2021

GRIFFIN - District Attorney Marie Greene Broder is proud to announce her candidacy for election as District Attorney of the Griffin Judicial Circuit in a special election on February 9, 2021. Appointed in March of 2020 to fill the vacancy left when the former District Attorney was sworn in as Superior Court Judge, Broder is recognized as a fierce advocate for justice.

Broder has represented the State of Georgia since 2011 when shortly after her graduation from the University of Georgia School of Law, Broder trained as a prosecutor in the Alcovy Judicial Circuit. In 2012, Broder returned to her native circuit to serve her community. Living for several years in Fayette County, Broder moved to Griffin in 2017 where she lives with her husband and daughter.

A Thomaston native, Broder grew up as the daughter of a cattle farmer and a special education teacher and learned early that things worth doing are worth doing right. It is with that frame of mind that Broder chose her path, earning her stripes as a trial lawyer and working her way through the ranks to become the Griffin Judicial Circuit’s first female District Attorney.

Broder has tried cases of every kind ranging from traffic citations to capital murder as an Assistant District Attorney and then as Chief Assistant District Attorney. In the brief time since her appointment as District Attorney, she has steered the District Attorney’s four county offices through the pandemic with an eye toward safeguarding the health of her employees while remaining available to the public that she serves. Once approved by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia, she orchestrated the reopening of grand jury proceedings in all four counties and is eagerly awaiting the green light to resume jury trials.

Known for her determination and passion, Broder is an advocate for the people she serves. Broder states, “This job is a calling; it is not a path to travel lightly. When victimized by crime, people feel as if they are robbed of their voice. It is the honor of my life to lend them mine.”

The special election for District Attorney is scheduled to take place February 9, 2021.
