Governor to appoint new county court judge

The 9th Judicial District Nominating Commission has narrowed its list to two finalists to fill the Garfield County Court judgeship created by the pending retirement of the County Judge Paul Metzger.

Nominees are Katharine A. Johnson of Snowmass Village and Angela M. Roff of Glenwood Springs. The finalists were selected during a Monday meeting at the Garfield County Courthouse.

Metzger announced his retirement earlier this year, effective Oct. 1.

Under the Colorado Constitution, the governor now has 15 days from Tuesday to appoint one of the nominees as county court judge for Garfield County.
