Sturdivant announces bid for District Judge

Monroe City Attorney Angie Deal Sturdivant has officially announced her campaign for 4th Judicial District Judge, Division E, in the election to be held November 3, 2020.

Sturdivant is an experienced prosecutor and civil litigator, civic leader and community volunteer running to serve Ouachita and Morehouse Parishes with the dedication she has shown throughout her career.

“In my practice and when in the courtroom,” Sturdivant said, “I treat everyone the way I would expect to be treated – with dignity, fairness, and a stern respect for our laws and constitution. I’m running for District Judge with those same high expectations for our courts here in Ouachita and Morehouse Parishes – to bring respect, fairness and civility to a system that truly delivers justice. With more than a decade of experience maintaining law and order for Northeast Louisiana’s largest city, I’ve got the experience the job requires. But more importantly, as a lifelong citizen of this community, raised with our solid values, I’ve got the character the job demands.”

The Division E seat on the District Court is currently open, with Judge Fred C. Amman, III retiring at the end of his current term.

Sturdivant has been a public servant in Ouachita Parish for the past 11 years. She began her legal career with the City of Monroe as a prosecutor in Monroe City Court. She was promoted to City Attorney in 2018. Now, Sturdivant serves as the chief legal advisor for the City of Monroe, its Mayor, and its City Council.

She is an active member of First United Methodist Church in Monroe, she serves as a member of the Church’s Children’s Council and the Church’s Pre-school and Daycare Board. She has also served as a Team Member for Charis Methodist Women’s Retreats.

Born and raised in Ouachita Parish, Sturdivant is a proud graduate of West Monroe High School, followed by Louisiana State University, where she earned a degree in Political Science. She went on to study law at Southern University Law Center, where she earned her Juris Doctorate in May of 2009.
