Welcome to Flowers For Judge Campaign!



I am so excited about this campaign and the opportunity to represent you as the Republican Judge for the 257th Family Court.   Over the past 21 years I've seen first-hand the enemy's attempt to destroy our children by tearing apart families.   For the sake of our community and the many lives that are forever affected by judicial decisions, we need judges that are committed to putting families first! ... particularly our children!

Fighting the good fight!

There is a WAR on families!  It will require someone with a BRAVE HEART.  I have discovered that positive outcomes occur in the court system when judges stand strong for righteous principals and do not abandon conservative fundamentals - even when faced with threats, malicious attacks, or disgruntled opponents.   Too often we see elected officials afraid to stand up for justice.  We need judges who will stand strong for what is right and fight the good fight for our families.  I am that BRAVE HEART.

I am also that FIGHTER! For over 21 years I have been fighting for families.  For example, I had to fight for my client's constitutional right to a jury trial when a judge ruled against it.  The 1st Court of Appeals agreed with our petition and ordered the trial court to allow a jury trial.  I fought for child and spousal support for my client, even when faced with the wrath of a newly-appointed Federal Bankruptcy Judge who usurped the power of our family court.

Wisdom and Experience

I want the opportunity to serve our community, uphold Christian principals of righteousness, and stand strong for our children.  As a previously divorced, mother of two, I know the devastating feeling individuals experience when going before a judge.  Not being assured of the outcome - let alone how I would survive as a single parent - I experienced one of the most fearful moments of my life.  While I never anticipated how God could ever use this to His glory, it has certainly prepared me for such a time as this.  My experience will allow me to view the petitions with a unique perspective, empathy, and understanding, toward those who may stand before me.  None of my opponents have this first-hand perspective.

Likewise, the joy I have experienced with my blended family has been remarkable.  I have been blessed with a supportive husband and with children who are well-adjusted.  This will allow me to speak hope and healing to those who will come before me.

Beyond my personal experience, I am the only candidate with jury trial experience and although my opponent passed the specialist exam in January 2018, I am the only Board Certified Family Law Specialist since 2011.  To see more of my qualifications and my proposed improvements for the 257th, please read more of this website and sign-up for my campaign updates.

I need your support!

Regardless of experience, I cannot do this alone.  I need YOU.  I need your prayers; I need your support; and I need your vote.  Will you please join me and my team in making the 257th a Family Court that is known for a fair hearing, a caring judge, and wise supporters -- like you!


Respectfully yours,

Melanie Flowers
257th Family District Court
