A Montgomery attorney who plans to challenge Probate Judge Reese McKinney1 in the 2012 general election believes his law degree and experience will make him an appealing alternative.
Michael Martin, who is 60, has a private practice based in his Montgomery home and is currently doing a consulting work for a firm in Washington D.C. on various issues, such as expanding broadband wireless to rural communities.
If he qualifies as a candidate, it will be his first time seeking public office. He intends to earn the Democratic Party's nomination in the race, meaning, if successful, he would not face the Republican incumbent until the November election.
Martin, who worked as chief of staff for former Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom, believes his education and experience as an attorney have prepared him for the job.

In a crowded Washington, D.C., airport, I see several Army soldiers. I am reminded of an incident earlier in the day when a polite young man held a hotel elevator open for me. He was carrying desert sand combat boots while he stood close to a young woman.
"Please," he intently said to me, inviting me to go ahead of him. Please, I thought to myself, pleading with no one in particular, spare this young man; let this war end.
