Bar Election: Winners and Losers

Wethepeople
Who are the big winner’s in today’s bar election to fill the opening left by Ned Mangum’s appointment:

  1. David Snipes
  2. Matt Lively
  3. “Woofer” Davidian
  4. Chris Dozier

These four Republicans were nominated by the bar to serve the rest of Mangum’s term. Seth Blum was nominated, but he is a Democrat and stands no chance of being appointed by a Republican governor.

Who is the big loser? Paul “Skip” Stam. Stam had sent out two emails in support of Charles Gilliam. But Gilliam was unable to garner even the minimal number of votes to get in the top five nominees. This is good news for Craig Croom who is running against Gilliam in the fall election to fill Judge James Fullwood’s vacancy.
