Gov Lynch to Nominate 6 Circuit Court Judges

Governor John Lynch announced Tuesday he will nominate six people to the state’s circuit courts during the Governor and Council meeting that will take place Wednesday morning at ten in Manchester.

The Governor’s nominees include Paul Moore of Bedford, Mark Weaver of Greenland, Lawrence MacLeod of Lebanon, Jennifer Lemire of Stratham, Julie Introcaso of Manchester and Susan Carbon of Chichester. All were recommended by the Governor’s Judicial Selection Commission. Lynch spokesman, Colin Manning, says the Governor believes all the nominees are well-suited to serve the public.

“It’s important that we have a full complement of judges so the courts can function and we can provide that critical access.”

Susan Carbon was nominated by President Obama to direct of the Office on Violence Against Women in the U.S. Department of Justice. She obtained the post after a hold by anonymous Senators was lifted. She’s been nominated as a part time circuit court judge.
