To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Eastern Judicial Circuit District Attorney Meg Heap and Quentin Marlin of Ellis, Painter, Ratterree & Adams P.C., both of Savannah, on their recent appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the statewide Judicial Nominating Commission.
All Georgians will benefit from their service on the commission, which is responsible for receiving applications, interviewing candidates and making recommendations to the governor for appointments to judicial vacancies across the state.
With their acceptance of this important task, Ms. Heap and Mr. Marlin demonstrate their continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish them well in this new capacity of leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
