New Judge for 6th Judicial District in the Works

Seven candidates have applied to fill the Judges’s seat for the sixth judicial district – including Desirea Soloman, Christine Thornton, Timothy Schulz, Mark Rafferty, Patrick Lee, Francis Barron the Third and Greg Ariza. Each of those candidates this morning gave a 20 minute speech on their background and qualifications to serve as judge.

A panel of peers and laypeople now will pare down that number of candidates to two, and send those two names to Governor Pete Ricketts this afternoon for his decision, which is expected either later today or on Monday.

We will convey his decision once it is made.
