A Princeton woman launched her campaign for district judge for the 56th district, which includes Caldwell, Livingston, Lyon and Trigg counties. 

Jennifer Nelson, who was the first candidate to file for the race in November, has launched a website and social media account to connect with voters.

Nelson was born in Paducah and moved to Princeton in 2008.

Nelson said her private practice encompasses domestic relations, guardianship issues and cases involving children and families.

She has also been active in the foster care system as a foster parent and training volunteer. She has three children and is a proud supporter of the Special Olympics.

Nelson, who has not run for office before, is seeking the seat currently held by Judge Jamus Redd, who has filed to run for the circuit judge seat held by the retiring C.A. "Woody" Woodall.

Brandon Knoth and Matt Schalk have also filed for the seat. The top two vote-getters in the May primary will run off in the November general election.
