The 31st Circuit Judicial Commission has chosen candidates for two vacancies on the Greene County Circuit Court.
The commission selected Joshua B. Christensen, Ann Mills and S. Jacob Sappington as finalists for a circuit vacancy created by Judge Becky Borthwick’s recent appointment to the Court of Appeals Southern District.
Christensen is an attorney with Kutak Rock’s Springfield office. Mills is with Courtney & Mills, and Sappington is with Baty Otto Coronado Scheer.
The commission simultaneously picked Kaiti Greenwade, Steven E. Kellogg and Daniel R. Wichmer for the associate circuit vacancy created by Judge Jerry E. Harmison Jr.’s elevation to the circuit bench.
Greenwade is the prosecuting attorney for Dade County and an attorney with Greenwade Law Firm in Willard. Kellogg is a public defender, and Wichmer is the executive director of Legal Services of Southern Missouri.
The commission said all six candidates were chosen unanimously. Gov. Mike Parson has 60 days to appoint one of the nominees to each of the two vacancies.
