Vacancy #2 on Supreme Court 2012 - The newest citizen member of the Judicial Nominating Commission

Although as of this afternoon the Judicial Nominating Commision website still shows Fred McCashland, an Indianapolis resident and retired government teacher from Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School as one of the three Governor's citizen appointees on the Judicial Nominating Commission, the ILB has received word that Mr. McCashland has resigned. He was not present during the second round of the Court of Appeals interviews on June 4th.

In his place the Governor has appointed Ryan Streeter of Indianapolis. Mr. Streeter is mentioned on Wikipedia. Mr. Streeter also has a blog, RyanStreeter.com and he is on Twitter @streeterryan.

Mr. Streeter had an op-ed in the June 22, 2012 issue of the Indianapolis Star on entitlement reform, and is a policy adviser to Mike Pence, according to this June 7, 2012 AP story by Tom LoBianco.

He will serve the remainder of Mr. McCashland's term, which ends Dec. 31st of this year.
