Jefferson City

Three weeks ago today, the state’s electorate voted to retain Supreme Court Justice Richard Teitelman.

If the process to find his replacement can work fast enough, and by “fast enough,” I mean spitting out a recommendation before January 9, then Nixon just might be able to appoint the replacement before the final bell tolls on his time as Governor.

That’s one advantage of our “non-partisan” court plan – you can act fast in the smoke-filled back rooms to find the “most qualified” person for the job.
