Gov. Scott Walker announced Friday he is seeking applicants to serve at least one year as a Rock County Court judge.
The appointee will replace Judge James Daley, who announced Tuesday that he will retire March 2.
Daley will have served 29 years on the bench.
The governor’s news release said the appointed replacement would be up for election in April 2019 if he or she decides to run.
Walker could have appointed someone to complete Daley’s current term, which ends in 2020, or to call for the 2019 election.
Walker has appointed two of the county’s seven judges, John Wood and Jeffrey Kuglitsch.
Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, resume and two writing samples through a link on the governor’s website, walker.wi.gov.
All materials must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 29.
Potential applicants with questions about the process should email questions to email@example.com or, for more urgent questions, call Kate Wiedel at 608-266-1212.
