Howard County District Attorney Hardy Wilkerson will seek a fifth term in office in 2012, as he announced this week he has filed the necessary paperwork with state officials to run for re-election.
Wilkerson, who has represented the 118th Judicial District for nearly 15 years, said the decision to run for re-election — which he will do on the Republican ticket — was a practical one for him.
“It really came down to asking myself a series of practical questions. Do I still enjoy what I am doing? Yes, I do,” Wilkerson said. “Do I feel like I’m still being productive? Yes, I do."
