To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Augusta Judicial Circuit District Attorney Natalie Paine on her recent appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the statewide Judicial Nominating Commission.
All Georgians will benefit from Ms. Paine’s 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 her acceptance of this important task, Ms. Paine demonstrates her continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
