The Seventh Judicial District Nominating Commission has nominated three candidates for a district court judgeship created by the resignation of the Hon. Jeff B. Herron, effective March 1. Nominees Donald (Cory) Jackson of Ouray, Bennet Morris of Montrose and Keri Yoder of Telluride were selected by the commission on Feb. 2.
Under the Colorado Constitution, the governor has 15 days from Feb. 3 within which to appoint one of the nominees as district court judge for the Seventh Judicial District (Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel counties).
Comments regarding any of the nominees may be sent via email to the governor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At their March 5 meeting Commissioners Doug Atchley, Mark Roeber and Don Suppes made two appointments to the county planning commission. Steve Shea was reappointed for a three-year term.
