The 7th Circuit Judicial Commission has selected Calan T. McConkey, Kelly R. Ruark and Peter W. Schloss for an associate circuit judge vacancy in Clay County.
The vacancy was created by the recent elevation of Judge Alisha D. O’Hara to circuit bench. Gov. Mike Parson has 60 days to make the appointment.
McConkey is an attorney with McConkey & Bowen in Excelsior Springs. Ruark is with The Law Offices of Bolstad and Ruark in Liberty. Schloss is a solo practitioner in Liberty. The five-member commission said all three were chosen unanimously following consideration of eight applicants on Oct. 6.
