ELECT
MICHAEL LIGONS
Madison County Prosecuting Attorney
AUGUST 2ND – REPUBLICAN PRIMARY ELECTION

Thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to read this. If you have any questions when you are done, please contact me and allow me to answer them for you.

For those of you who don’t already know, I’m married to Betty Ann (Cloninger) – she was raised here in Madison county and graduated from Fredericktown High School. We’ve been married for 30 years this year and for most of that time we lived where I grew up, in Carter County. During that 30 year period we have stayed pretty busy: we’ve been actively involved in raising four kids; we went to law school (I say “we” because Betty sacrificed a lot during that time, too); Betty was Public Administrator in Carter County and a court clerk; and for more than the last 23 years I have been a lawyer, prosecutor and judge. During that time we have always maintained contact with our friends and family here and moved here after I retired from being judge.

I filed for prosecutor because the citizens of our community should be able to trust the criminal justice system and know that it is working to protect them. I believe that I have the ability and experience to help and I want my campaign to be about what I will do that will make the Madison County criminal justice system a more trusted and valuable asset to our community.

If I’m elected:

1. I will aggressively prosecute violations of the law in order to hold criminals accountable and to make them responsible for the damage they have done to our community. While doing so, I will do my best to make sure that the system works fairly for both the victims of crime and the defendants. (I have been asked repeatedly about whether I will prosecute drug crimes and the answer is, “Yes.” My duty will be to prosecute all crimes and I will perform my duty.)

2. I will work closely with law enforcement to make sure that they have whatever they need from me to be able to do their job safely and effectively. In addition, I will work closely with law enforcement to make sure that they understand what I need from them in order to do my job effectively and in the manner that the citizens of Madison County deserve.

3. I will have an open door policy about every aspect of my job. I believe that government officials should answer directly to the people wherever and whenever possible. I will be open and honest about every decision that I make. If you have a question about why I’ve done what I’ve done, I will take the time to make sure you understand my reasoning. I’m ok if you don’t agree with me on any decision I make, but I’m not ok with you not understanding why I made it.

4. I will do my job efficiently and will be a good steward of public resources. I will not undertake any action that costs the tax payers money without first having considered whether there is a better, cheaper, and more efficient way to get it done.

My hope is that by working hard doing these four things every day I can be part of a criminal justice system of which we can all be proud.

I would appreciate your consideration and support on August 2nd.
Thank you.

Fredericktown, MO---Michael Ligons, retired judge and local attorney, has announced he is campaigning for Madison County prosecuting attorney.

“It is my honor to announce that I am asking the citizens of Madison County to consider voting for me to be their next prosecuting attorney,” Ligons says.

Ligons moved to Fredericktown over a year ago with his wife, Betty (Cloninger) Ligons, who was born and raised on Dry Creek in Madison County. The couple had been residing in Carter County, Missouri since their marriage in 1992 and for several years had been planning a move to Madison County upon Ligons’ retirement from the bench. Prior to serving 12 years as the elected judge in Carter County, Ligons was the elected prosecutor for four years, managed a private practice for more than 9 years both before and after his time on the bench, served 4 years as the Circuit Clerk and Recorder of Deeds, and is a veteran of the U.S. Navy having served as a cryptologist/Russian linguist from 1985 to 1990.

Ligons said that he has always believed that choice and change are two of the most important aspects of the American political system and he wants to provide the people of Madison County with an opportunity to choose whom they believe will be the best person for the job.

“It was not my intention to file for election when we moved here, but I feel like it is my duty to do what I can to bolster the citizens’ confidence in the Madison County justice system. Having served 4 years as an elected prosecutor and 12 years as an elected Associate Circuit Court Judge, I feel I have the unique experience and ability to serve the public in the manner in which it deserves.”

Ligons said that, if elected, he will be 100% committed to fair, honest, and energetic prosecution of criminal defendants while working hard to ensure that the system treats everyone even-handedly.

“We live in the greatest nation on this planet and that is due largely to the fact that we have a system of justice which is designed to treat every person, rich or poor, fairly and evenly. I am committed to holding every person who commits a crime accountable while ensuring that the fairness that is the hallmark of the American justice system is preserved.”

Ligons said that he is looking forward to getting out and meeting more of the citizens of Madison County to find out what is important to them and to answer any questions they might have.

“I hope to get a chance to speak directly to every person in Madison County who has an interest in voicing their opinion or concerns, as well as to any person who wishes to learn more about me and my candidacy. I want people to know that this election is about their choice and to make sure they have a clear idea of what it is they are choosing if they vote for me. I appreciate each and every opportunity given to me to learn more about my fellow Madison County residents.”

Ligons will be facing the incumbent in the Republican primary election to be held August 2, 2022.
