To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Blue Ridge Judicial Circuit District Attorney Shannon Wallace of Canton on her recent appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as co-chair of the statewide Judicial Nominating Commission.
All Georgians will benefit from Ms. Wallace’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. Wallace 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
