Josie Townsend


Clark County Superior Court

Department 8

This race will be decided in the Primary Election.

Josie TownsendStatement: A judge has the sacred responsibility of making decisions that significantly impact people’s lives. These decisions can determine your freedom and liberty, guilt or innocence, property and parental rights, and much more. Given the importance of these decisions, we have the right to expect that our elected leaders, and especially judges, consistently practice and display the fundamental values of fairness, equality, and justice to all people.

I am committed to achieving fairness, equality, and justice when making decisions that will affect your lives. I would be honored to have the privilege of serving you as Clark County Superior Court Judge.
