COUNTY COURT NOMINEES



In 1932 John "Cactus Jack" Nance Garner was elected the 32nd Vice President of the United States. In March of 1933, before resigning his seat in the house, he became the second man to ever be Speaker of the House and President of the Senate on the same day. 
Garner is famous in history for describing the Vice Presidency as "not being worth a warm buck of ____" the final word being variously described by historians as "piss", "spit" or "shit". 

Now on to news of County Court.  Any resemblance to the above portion of the post and the following is purely coincidental. 

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

SO, YOU WANT TO BE A COUNTY COURT JUDGE .......

The JNC was in their own Beast Mode this past weekend, logging two full days of interviews on Saturday and Sunday.  They interviewed a total of 30 applicants for the two open County Court seats of Judge Gladys Perez and Judge Rudy Ruiz.

Here are the names they sent to Governor Scott:

To replace Judge Perez:

Laura Ann Stuzin
Diana Vizcaino
Gina Beovides
Jonathan Meltz
Karl St Hope Brown
Elijah A. Levitt

To replace Judge Ruiz:

Laura Ann Stuzin
Diana Vizcaino
Gina Beovides
Joseph Mansfield
John William Wylie IV
Alexander Spicola Bokor

The Governor has 60 days to choose the two replacements.  If you would like to weigh in on any of the finalists, you can contact Governor Scott's Office of General Counsel at 850.717.9310.

Captain, can we get some bios? I'm not familiar with all of the names.

CABA Board of Directors, plus Legal Aid lawyer for nearly 10 years. That's all Scott would need.

County Court needs someone like Joseph Mansfield. He's been at the SAO for 14 years, but as his recent stint as Chief of County Court shows, he would be a fair and reasonable jurist. He has the experience and pizazz necessary for the position.

Gina Beovides to replace Don Cohn. Another attorney from Legal Aid who has never tried a case becomes a judge. Great. Way to go Governor.
