DES MOINES – Three nominees have been chosen for a vacancy on the Iowa Court of Appeals.

The nominating commission met Friday, June 25, 2021, to interview the applicants for the vacancy. Following the interviews, the commission deliberated and selected a slate of three nominees from the group of applicants and delivered the slate to the Governor. The nominees selected are:

Judge Gina Badding, Carroll

Judge Joel Barrows, Bettendorf

Judge Mary Chicchelly, Cedar Rapids

The governor has thirty (30) days in which to appoint the new judge.

The 17-member commission is composed of eight commissioners elected by lawyers licensed to practice law in Iowa, and nine commissioners appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Iowa Senate. The names of the commissioners are on the Iowa Judicial Nominating Commissions website.

    When you get to appoint over 1/2 of the members on the commission and you appoint all Republicans, you can dictate what you want the judiciary to look like. That is not the way the judicial part of our government should be run. It should be devoid of politics but Kim ‘Q’ Reynolds doesn’t do things the way they should be done, she does things the way her puppet masters want her to.
