Attorney Announces Judge Candidacy

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - A Billings attorney joins three other candidates in the race for district court judge.

William Speare said he is the only candidate who the judicial nominating commission certified as qualified for the position. He is running for the seat being vacated by Judge G. Todd Baugh. Speare said voters need to educate themselves before their ballots. "It's humbling, and I am very gratified to have my friends and family here. It is a very important position, and I would be very honored and humbled to attain it," Bill Speare said.

The other candidates for Judge Baugh's seat are Corbit Harrington, Bill O'Conner, and Rod Souza. Mike Moses previously filed for the position, but he has already been appointed to Judge Susan Watters' position.
