[May 29 Update] - I was wrong about Judge Field, after contacting the XD of the Colorado Office of Judicial Performance Evaluation. Judge Field doesn't come up for retention until November 2014. The process is also different than it appears from having attended hearings in 2010…
Apparently the Commission on Judicial Performance, which in 2010 was infested with wives of judges/ex-judges and other inappropriate individuals in the non-attorney positions, has decided to not have public hearings this year. In cahoots with that, neither are the local media outlets carrying that fact that the time is elapsing to get citizen input to the Commission. This is ESPECIALLY CONCERNING, in that the last day for input is this upcoming Tuesday, May 29, 2012.
One of the judges that must not be retained is Julie Junce Field.
There is a questionnaire at www.coloradojudicialperformance.gov/questionnaires.cfm, for non-attorneys who have been affected or have participated in the process. Questionnaires can still be submitted to Mac Hester before Tuesday email@example.com (221-0664) and/or Sean Rutledge, Public Information Liaison: firstname.lastname@example.org, (669-2864). Insure that you put the judge's name in the subject line of the email. You can also mail the completed questionnaire to:
