Calling all judges: Want a job?

Judges hopefuls, dust off your resumes.

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland's office has issued an open invitation for applications to fill the Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge seat vacated by Alex Triantafilou.

Read the release here

Triantafilou earlier this year gave up his judgeship to take over as head of the Hamilton County Republican Party.

If you want his old job, you have to have experience and run in the November election.

Jim O'Reailly should get it. He ran a great campaign for Court of Appeals!

I thought they could only be appointed to the job until after the election... not run in November as well because the vacancy occurred after the primary election.

We can't imagine giving up an $80,000 est. part-time job with the ability to practice law for a $120,000 est. full-time job ?

We suspect that Todd makes a judges salary and more ?

But, Todd would make a good judge !

Whittman, though, has over 20 years experience before Common Pleas, and great at it.

I am sure that Governor Strickland, who promised to take partisan politics out of judicial appointments, will appoint someone with no ties to the local Democratic machine whatsoever. I mean, he set up this non-partisan committee and everything, right?

O'Reilly is a legal scholar which is why he makes an excellent choice for appeals court.

Don't know that he would be interested in Common Pleas, but he certainly has the legal mind to make an excellent judge.

No doubt it will be a non-partisan decision, after all Taft always appointed wRong wingnut whackos !

But, who do the wRong wingnut whackos have: The dough-boy family 'Mock' ?

Wait till his record is revealed !

The Ohio Supreme Court slammed him in his frivolous complaints which the court ackonwledged were true about him !

He tried intimidation to suppress the truth and free speech !

The court slammed him in return !

That would be nice, but, judges are non-partisan and vacancies must be filled ASAP !

Jim O'Reilly doesn't have the first idea of how to become a Judge. And he so richly deserved to get his butt kicked resoundly in that Appellate Judge race.

Judge John Burlew.

I think O'Reilly should go for it.

"Judge John Burlew. 8:34 PM, April 09, 2008"

Washed-up and never pursued Common Pleas on his own, even when the wRong wingnut whackos appointed their cronies.

He couldn't beat an excellent Dem endorsed judicial candidate in a district he held for years, although it was close. He would fail miserably in a county-wide race. He will not win the appointment !

We predict Bruce Whitman !

I'll say this for the repugs and their judges, as the party of criminals they do speak the same language as most criminals they judge.

Thanks for making us your number one threat to all judges!

Talk about 'cut, paste, plagiarize and run' !

Keep following, 'bold endeavors' !

Bold print foot tapper, that "excellent" Dem you're referring to is Duane Mallory. You don't get out much to find out how that election was really won (bought). Go find some friends who know the story.

It's Judge John Burlew.

I cannot believe the governor of the state of ohio would have the nerve to solicit citizens of the state for a position in Hamilton county. Did he ask King George Vincent's permission for such a democratic process? In hamilton county, we have never had such a thing occur. The governor needs to be very careful of upsetting King George. he may have made a deal for this position, we would not want to have a competition of ideas in our community where people are trying to improve our conditions rather we would rather preserve the power of the party. we allow this as a community? Clearly, all of our check and balane institiutions are conspirators, the majority party, the minority party and the press. the city beat newspaper is breaking this story not the enquirer. Who is George vincent and what is his vision for our community? When does somebody expose his positions on issues? Are the republicans that good or are the democrats that weak that they cannot even evoke a sensible debate by putting up credible candidates against republican candidates. The candidate may not win but it at least creates a discussion, clearly the enquirer has abdicated their responsibility for challenging the establishment! Gee maybe more people would read the paper if it was thought provoking...crazy idea

You obviously don't get out much or you would be screaming from the roof-tops about how Allen, Stockdale, Mock (bought) the election by transferring all their campaign funds to the local 'culture of corruption' party and then having the state wRong wingnut whacko crook 'bennett' send unlawful and misleading campaign literature on their behalf !

PATHETIC 'family values' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !
