Saint Clair times (Newspaper) - December 6, 2012, Saint Clair, MichiganGenerals. Clair times St. Clair county Leeds and Trussville ala., thursday december 6, 2012 a 3a commission tables creation of judicial nominating committee by will Heath St. Clair times editor Pell City a St. Clair county commissioners voted to table a Resolution that would have led to the creation of a judicial nominating committee at their regular meeting nov. 27. The commission a which first heard the idea of a nominating committee that would meet in Case of a midterm vacancy in the judicial system a tabled the Resolution unanimously after commissioner Paul Manning moved to do so. Manning had stated previously that he thought the current process for judicial appointments is sufficient. A in my opinion it was for the Best interest of the county to table it a Manning said. Since 2008, the governors office has appointed probate judge Mike Bowling circuit judge Phil Seay and District judge Alan Furr. In each Case the judges were chosen from a Pool of county residents who applied. According to the Resolution a first proposed by presiding circuit judge Jim Hill at the county a nov. 7 meeting a the committee would consist of five members the presiding circuit judge Hill the chairman of the county commission Stan Bat Monthe county a representative on the Alabama bar association Elizabeth Parsons and two at Large members one from the Northern division and one from the Southern. The committee would receive applications for any vacancies and make non binding recommendations to the governor for the appointment. A we really have a Good judiciary in this county and in a very proud of them a Hill said Friday. A there Are times when vacancies occur and so far the governor has done an excellent Job of filling those vacancies. The Only purpose of this Bill is to do a screening or vetting so that the Best the three most qualified people can be presented to the governor for his selection. A i started practising Law in 1975, and Over that course of time i Ore judges were selected that really should not have been. Eventually they appeared that Wen got turned out but Why go through 2-3-4 years of that when you done to have to a another attorney Beverly Owen Barber voiced her opposition to the idea during the commissions work session tuesday. Barber said she believes the current process to be sufficient. A even if they have a very very Good committee at this time that does not mean it would not become a monster later a Barber said. A so Many times things like that Are difficult to control in the future. A the Way its been handled is a fairer and More open Opportunity for anyone to compete for whatever vacancies there Are. I just feel like to narrow this Down As to who is even going to be submitted As far As a candidate is not something that our citizens Are going to Barber said she expects citizen petitions to be circulated regarding the Issue and expects those petitions to make their Way to the commission. Batemon said the discussion would not come Back to the commission unless Manning who moved to table it brings it Back before them. A i believe the judges will have to talk to the legislative delegation and i could see it coming Back up a Batemon said. A otherwise i done to see it coming Back up for Batemon said he holds no position about the formation of the committee but that he wants to support the judges. A if the judges those that Are being affected if they feel a threat about the process then i want to support them on it a he said. A i would support whatever request i get from my judges because they re the ones that have looked at this. A i do understand the other part of the question if it ainu to broke done to fix it. The other part of that is you wait for something to break if you think there a a possibility it will. Its like preventive rep. Jim Mcclendon a Springville said the committee would require a legislative action and he intended to do More research before taking a position. A i have no feelings up or Down a Mcclendon said. A i know Shelby county has that committee and they seem satisfied. A a in a going to look into it and find out those supporting it and those opposed to it and Well figure out what we re going to Hill said he has no intention of taking it to the legislature without the county a blessings. A if the commission ultimately decides they done to want to do this there a nothing i can do about it a he said. A a in a not going to go Over their Heads so to speak. A i do think its a Good idea if i did no to think it was a Good idea i do the commissions next regular meeting will be dec. 11 at the county a administrative building in Ashville.
