Ind. Courts - More on: Nominations open for the 1st District attorney member of the Judicial Nominating Commission

Yesterday the ILB reported that:

[T]he election results are now in for the attorney member who will represent the 1st District on the Commission for the next three years. This is the seat currently held by James O. McDonald of Terre Haute.

The certified results of the District 1 election show that the new commissioner, who will take office January 1st and serve for 3 years, is Stephen L. Williams.

Mr. Williams is also of Terre Haute. Commissioners are not eligible for successive reelection or reappointment.

A reader has just sent this note to the ILB:

Not sure, but hasn’t this seat been handed back and forth between these two for over 10 years now?
The ILB has checked, via this list it posted in 2010 (yes, it needs updating). Mr. McDonald served from 2010 through 2012, Mr. Williams served from 2007 through 2009. Mr. McDonald from 2004 though 2006. As of Monday's news, Mr. Williams will now serve from 2013 through 2015.

It appears both men may have been a year or two behind me at what was then IU-Indy Law.
