Ind. Courts - Governor Pence Names Bodie J. Stegelmann Goshen City Judge

Updating this ILB post from May 20th of this year, headed "Goshen mayor Allan Kauffman suggests cutting city court," that included this quote from the Elkhart Truth:

The city court has operated at a deficit for at least 10 years, according to income and expense data provided by Kauffman. The court ended 2013 with a $164,210 loss, and in 2012, the court ended up $120,949 in the red.
and that ended with an ILB note:
The ILB looked back at its long, long list of earlier posts including the term "city court" and found many interesting entries, including several proposing abolition of an existing city court, several proposing creation of such a court (noting the revenue that could be generated), a number concerning discipline of city court judges.
Today Gov. Pence has announced:
Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today named Bodie J. Stegelmann as Judge in the Goshen City Court.

“With nearly two decades of criminal and civil law experience, Bodie Stegelmann has the expertise and passion necessary to serve Hoosiers well as Goshen City Court Judge,” said Pence.

Stegelmann works a partner with the Goshen, Indiana law firm of Yoder, Ainlay, Ulmer & Buckingham, LLP, where he is primarily engaged in business planning and real estate law and advises various local government bodies.
