-A A +A

Chiefland attorney, Cyndee Munkittrick wants to be your Levy County Judge. Cyndee graduated from the University of Florida College of Law and opened a private law firm in Chiefland in 1996.  She and her husband, the late Thomas (Tom) A. Munkittrick, were law partners in the Munkittrick Law Firm in Chiefland until Tom's death in 2003.
Cyndee is well versed in all aspects of the law. In her law practice, Cyndee has assisted clients in matters of administrative hearings and licensing law, criminal defense in felony and misdemeanor matters, real estate, probate matters, small claims, landlord tenant cases, dependency, divorce, child support, child custody, insurance law, personal injury and large civil law cases.  She has practiced in county and circuit court in nine different counties and has successfully argued cases before the District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee.  Cyndee said, "I believe in order to preside over such cases, it is imperative to have experience in them.  And that is why I’m well qualified for this position: I have extensive courtroom experience in a wide variety of legal matters."
Cyndee has not only the experience, but also the knowledge of our community.  "Our past helps define who we are and our overall values," Cyndee said. "It's important to anticipate and prepare for the changes of the future, while preserving our values." She's been a part of this community and owned property in Levy County for more than 40 years. Cyndee moved to Levy County in 1972 and her mother, sister, brother and their families all call Levy County home.   She’s watched our county grow and change during the past forty years and says it’s important WE elect our Judge, rather than allow someone in Tallahassee to decide for us.She promises, “If elected I will treat all who come before me with the utmost fairness and respect.  I will carefully listen to both sides of a disagreement and then base a fair and reasoned decision on the facts presented.” She said, “I will use only those facts and apply the law as drafted by our elected officials rather than attempt to create new law.”Being in public service is nothing new to Cyndee. In 1974 she, along with many other Levy Countians, volunteered for the U.S. Army Reserves. She's been a volunteer in many local organizations, giving back and helping to make our county a better place to live and raise our families. Cyndee is a member of the First Methodist Church in Chiefland.  Levy County deserves a judge who has spent decades as a local resident and who has a vested interest in keeping our community a safe, healthy and enjoyable place to raise our families.She and Tom have three children - who all attended Levy County Schools.  Today they have five grandchildren.  Michael Munkittrick and his wife Karrie live in Gainesville with their two daughters, Coral and Soleil.  Natasha Munkittrick Allen and her husband Patrick live in Old Town with their two sons, Hunter and Austin.  Andy Munkittrick and his wife Kate live in St. Petersburg with their daughter, Eve. Cyndee is the daughter of Erline Stutsman and the late Robert Stutsman of Chiefland, and the sister of Cherri Prevatt  (Lewis) and Kirk Stutsman (Lois), both of Chiefland.###For more information or to schedule an interview with Cyndee Munkittrick, you may contact Scott Osteen (352) 339-1705 or contact Cyndee directly at (352) 493-9007.
