Update: Applications for 22nd Judicial District Vacancy Due June 2

Last weekend’s untimely passing of Montezuma/Dolores County District Attorney Jim Wilson has left a vacancy in the Twenty-Second Judicial District’s District Attorney’s Office, and individuals interested in applying for the position must do so by tomorrow afternoon, the Office of the Governor has announced.

To be considered for the district attorney’s position, applicants must submit this application plus supporting materials to Gov. Ritter’s office by the close of business on Wednesday, June 2. To be eligible, applicants must have been licensed to practice law in Colorado for the last five years, must be a qualified elector in the Twenty-Second Judicial District, and must reside within the district while serving as its district attorney. The appointee will occupy the seat until January 11, 2011. If appointee wishes to remain in the position beyond that term, he or she must run for election in the 2010 general election.

Gov. Ritter is expected to appoint the new district attorney by the end of June. In the interim, a representative appointed by Colorado District Attorney John Suthers is prosecuting cases for Montezuma and Dolores counties.
