Judge Prospect, Tiffany Foxworth #218, urges the Baton Rouge community to remain prayerful amid the Coronavirus crisis. She holds steadfast to her faith and convictions in knowing that this too shall pass and relies upon biblical scripture as guidance and direction. She cites, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.” “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Foxworth calls upon all citizens to pray individually and collectively for the cure and eradication of the Coronavirus. Foxworth, will appear on the June 20, 2020 ballot for Judge, 19th Judicial District Court (JDC), Division M. Early voting dates are June 6, 2020 through June 13, 2020. The 19th JDC has jurisdiction over civil and all felony criminal matters occurring in East Baton Rouge Parish. This election has historical significance, in that for the first time ever, an African American can be elected judge to this division. In addition, the judiciary will reflect the demographics of the community, with eight out of fifteen elected African American judges. Before October 2019, there had only been five African Americans elected in this court. Foxworth, who in addition to being a long-standing attorney and U.S. Army Veteran, is also a registered nurse. She stresses the importance of seeking medical attention if you become febrile, experience shortness of breath and/or coughing. It is also imperative to follow the recommended guidelines of social distancing of six feet or greater, avoiding contact with sick individuals, covering mouth during coughing and sneezing and frequent hand-
washing for 20 seconds or the use of hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. Many people are out of work with the closure of area restaurants, bars, casinos, schools, child care centers and health clubs. The time has come for us to pull together as a community, help our neighbors and pray for healing, restoration and the creation of a vaccine to combat this deadly virus.
