The Judicial Nominating Commission for the 6th Judicial Circuit is seeking a non-lawyer to fill a four-year term as lay member of the commission. Applications can be obtained from JNC Chair, Irene H. Sullivan, Harris, Barrett, Mann & Dew, 150 Second Ave. N, Suite 1500, St. Petersburg, FL 33701; phone 892-3100. Completed applications must be returned by Tuesday. Interviews will be scheduled soon after. A judicial nominating commission is a panel of citizens that screens applicants for judicial vacancies and ultimately submits at least three of the most qualified applicants to the governor for appointment. The Florida Constitution required the governor to select one of the applicants submitted to him by the commission. The seat is a non-salaried position; however, expenses incurred by any commissioner in filling a judicial vacancy for travel or per diem are reimbursable by the State Courts Administrator's Office in accordance with state policy.
