His honor will still do diapers


Chad Kerkman

It didn’t take long Tuesday night for people to start referring to Chad Kerkman as “his honor.” Well wishers were addressing the winner of the Circuit Court 8th branch judge election in that manner shortly after it was apparent he had defeated opponent Fred Zievers.

The new title wasn’t lost on Chad’s wife, state Rep. Samantha Kerkman.

“I was wondering if I’m going to have to stand up now when he enters the room,” Samantha said to a reporter at the victory party at Birchwood Grill in Bristol.

But despite such signs of deference and fancy titles, it was clear Mrs. Kerkman was expecting the new judge not to get too haughty.

“He’ll still change diapers and let the dog out in the morning,” Samantha said.
