Gates sworn in as Winnfield City Judge

On Jan. 4, longtime lawyer for Winnfield, Keith Gates, was sworn in as the newly elected City Court Judge.

“America was founded on ideals that all men are created equal in term of the law,” Judge Gates said. “Judges are the keepers of the American law. Many people asked what type of judge I hope to be, and it gave me moments of thought and I found my answer in the Bible in Kings 3.”

“It’s an honor and a privilege to work as a judge, and a big responsibility to be the judge for the Winn Parish people,” newly elected Louisiana Supreme Court Judge Jay McCallum said. “We want honest judges, but most of all we want fair judges, and Keith Gates is one of the best people for the job.”
