On Tuesday, July 3, 2012, Governor John Hickenlooper announced several Board and Commission appointments, including appointments to the Thirteenth and Seventeenth Judicial District Judicial Nominating Commissions.
Colorado’s twenty-two judicial districts have judicial district nominating commissions that select nominees for district and county judicial vacancies. Each district nominating commission is chaired by a justice of the Supreme Court, who is a non-voting member of the commission.
Commission members serve six-year terms. Non-lawyers, who are the majority of every nominating commission, are appointed by the governor. Lawyer members are appointed by joint action of the governor, attorney general, and chief justice.
The member appointed to the Thirteenth Judicial District Judicial Nominating Commission for a term expiring December 31, 2017, is:
- Jerold A. Brandt of Holyoke, to serve as a non-attorney and as a Republican from Phillips County.
The member appointed to the Seventeenth Judicial District Judicial Nominating Commission for a term expiring December 31, 2015, is:
- Angelo C. Chavez of Broomfield, to serve as a non attorney and as a Republican from Broomfield County.
