Gov. Laura Kelly is going to get a new judicial appointment, this time in Johnson County where she will select from three nominees to serve on the bench in the 10th Judicial District.
The 10th District Judicial Nominating Commission sent the names of these candidates this week to Kelly.
They are: Michael McCulloch, the chief public defender in Johnson County; Shawnee Municipal Court Judge Karen Torline and Overland Park lawyer Paul Burmaster.
The governor's appointee will fill the vacancy of Judge Kevin Moriarty, who is retiring June 28 . . .
