Hickenlooper appoints local to judicial committee

Gov. John Hickenlooper has appointed attorney Lisel Thompson-Petis, of Steamboat Springs, to serve on the 14th Judicial District Judicial Performance Commission. Thompson-Petis’ term begins Tuesday Dec. 1 and runs through Nov. 30, 2019.

Commissions of Judicial Performance were created in 1988 by the Colorado General Assembly for the purpose of providing voters with fair, responsible and constructive evaluations of judges and justices seeking retention. There is one commission in each of the 22 judicial districts and one state commission. Each commission consists of 10 volunteer citizen members — four attorneys and six non-attorneys.

District commissioners evaluate the performance of county and district court judges in their judicial district during the judge’s current term of office.
