To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Bibb County State Court Judge Jeffery O. Monroe on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Macon Judicial Circuit, serving Bibb, Crawford and Peach counties.
Judge Monroe will be well served by his 18 years of experience in the legal profession, including service as a State Court judge for the past two years and, previously in private law practice. He is a valued member of the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia.
With his acceptance of this appointment, Judge Monroe demonstrates his ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
