Governor Jay Inslee is slated to start interviewing candidates for two soon-to-be vacated judge positions on the Chelan County Superior Court.
Judge Alicia Nakata retires in January with Judge TW “Chip” Small retiring in February. The Chelan/Douglas County Bar Association has forwarded to the Governor the names of two local attorneys who were rated as highly qualified to serve on the bench.
Travis Brandt and Kristin Ferrera out-polled several other attorney’s in a survey of bar association membership. Brandt currently serves as President of the Bar Association. The Governor will also consider written applications submitted with his office from other local attorney’s. To be eligible for appointment candidates must be a member of the Washington State Bar Association
