Commission unanimous in support of chief judge

Michael O'Hara up for retention in November election

The 14th Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance, a group of 10 people in Moffat, Routt and Grand counties, has unanimously recommended voters retain the district's chief judge in November. The commission, which includes four attorneys and six non-attorneys, reviewed Chief Judge Michael O'Hara, a Steamboat Springs resident and Southern California native. O'Hara was appointed to the 14th Judicial District in 2003 by then-Gov. Bill Owens. "Judge O'Hara is an extremely knowledgeable, hardworking individual," said Sharon Timmerman, a Steamboat Springs resident and co-public information liaison for the commission on judicial performance. "I feel we're fortunate to have him in the 14th Judicial District."
