Finalists Announced for Sedgewick County Vacancy


The 13th Judicial District Nominating Commission nominated two candidates for a Sedgwick County court judgeship in a meeting Tuesday. James Dolezal and Belinda Obermier, both of Julesburg, are finalists to fill the court vacancy created by Judge Tera Neugebauer’s resignation, which is effective May 1.

Under the Colorado Constitution, the governor has 15 days from Wednesday within which to appoint one of the nominees as county court judge for Sedgwick County.
