The Ninth Judicial District in western Illinois is looking for a new judge. 

Circuit Judge Paul Mangieri will retire in July and applications are now being accepted to fill the rest of his term.

Illinois Supreme Court Justice Tom Kilbride will screen the applications and then make a reccomendation to the Supreme Court.

The new judge will serve until next year's fall election. 

The Ninth Judicial District includes Fulton, Hancock, Henderson, Knox, McDonough, and Warren counties.

I'm currently a Senior at Augustana College, working on majors in Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication and Communication Studies. In addition to interning at the station, I also work for the Augustana Observer, the college's official student newspaper, as a writer for the Arts and Entertainment section.
