Only one person applied to fill a vacant position on the Hancock County Common Pleas Court. The Courier reports Municipal Court Judge Jonathan Starn submitted his name to take the spot left open when Common Pleas Court Judge Joseph Niemeyer retired last year. Governor John Kasich still has to approve Starn for the position.
Voters reelected Niemeyer in 2014. The term runs through 2020.
Starn has been a municipal court judge since 2010.
If Kasich appoints Starn to take the rest of Niemeyer’s term as judge, the same process will likely take place to fill Starn’s spot in the municipal court.
