From Local Sources
Judge Nathan Verkamp has announced his intention to seek a second term as judge of the Dubois Circuit Court.
Verkamp was elected to the position in 2014, and said he was humbled by the show of support in the last election.
His docket in Dubois Circuit Court consists of a wide range of case types, including criminal, civil, family, juvenile, mental health, guardianships and probate.
“As a trial judge working one of the busiest rural judgeships in Indiana, I have worked hard to ensure people are treated fairly and equally,” he said. “I want the parties to understand that the court has fully and carefully considered their positions and the applicable law regardless of the case’s outcome.”
Verkamp said he has enjoyed the partnerships and friendships he has formed while on the bench. “Our current group of stakeholders are all focused on achieving the right outcomes for all the people Dubois County,” he said. “When you work with good people and have a great staff, the results speak for themselves.”
He is especially proud of the partnership with the local schools in developing a unified truancy program.
After his enlistment in the United States Navy, Verkamp graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington and the McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. He is also a recent graduate of the Indiana Judicial College, and serves on the Indiana Criminal Policy committee.
Verkamp is a member of numerous professional, civic and fraternal organizations. He is a parishioner at St. Mary Church in Ireland.
He resides in Ireland with his wife, Jody, and the couple has three children.
“I thank the voters of Dubois County for giving me the opportunity to be one of their judges,” Verkamp said. “I am excited to continue serving the people of Dubois County. I have always been grounded by common sense and guided by the Rule of Law. If re-elected, I will continue to serve the community with integrity, dedication and dependability over another term as your judge of the Dubois Circuit Court.”
