Dr. Walter L. Glover, Jr. endorses David Cooke
for Macon DA
(Macon, GA) Dr. Walter L. Glover, Jr., Moderator of the Union Baptist Missionary and Educational Association of Middle Georgia, today endorsed Democratic candidate David Cooke for Macon Judicial Circuit D.A.
“It is genuinely an honor and a pleasure to endorse a man of David’s faith and character for a position as important to the well-being of our entire community as our District Attorney,” Glover said. “I know David well. I know his family. I know his heart. And I even know his favorite scripture: Micah 6-8 ‘What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God?’ David Cooke is the right man for the right job.”
David previously served as Chief of the Special Victims Unit (SVU) for four years, was a Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney in Atlanta, Georgia, where he successfully handled the starvation and torture-murder case of five-year-old Terrell Peterson. In addition to working in the Homicide and Special Victims Units in Atlanta, Cooke served as an Assistant Solicitor-General in Athens, GA, and as an Assistant District Attorney in Carrollton, GA.
Cooke is a frequent lecturer on crimes against women and children, and has been featured multiple times as an expert commentator on HLN’s Nancy Grace Show.
