To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Mack Taylor of Mack Taylor Law in Evans and District Attorney Natalie Paine of the Augusta Judicial Circuit (Burke, Columbia and Richmond counties) on their recent appointments 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, Mr. Taylor and Ms. Paine 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
