Gov. Scott Walker is seeking applicants to fill the seat of a Jackson County judge who is stepping down.

According to a news release from Walker’s office, the judge appointed to replace him will serve until April 2015, and that person would have to run for their next term.

Those interested in applying can find information on Walker’s website. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. May 26.
