Public may comment on three judge candidates

Scott Orr
Special to the Tribune

The Yavapai County Superior Court is accepting public comment on three finalists for the position of judge pro tempore.

The vacancy was created when Ethan Wolfinger resigned in December.

The three candidates are Joseph C. Butner III of Camp Verde, Glenn A. Savona of Prescott Valley, and Paul C. Schlegel of Cottonwood.

Butner is currently working on an hourly basis as a judge pro tem for the county. Prior to that he was chief judge for the Yavapai-Apache Nation Tribal Court. Butner has been a prosecutor in the Yavapai County Attorney's Office, and worked as an attorney in his own practice and for law firms from 1981 to 1999.

Savona is assistant Prescott city attorney; he has worked for the city since 1990 and has also served as the city prosecutor. Before he started work in Prescott, he worked as an attorney at a Tucson law firm.

Schlegel has worked in private practice since 2001 and currently runs his own firm.

Presiding Judge David L. Mackey will consider any comments he receives when he decides which candidate's name he will send to the chief justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, Rolf Eckel, county court administrator, said. The county Board of Supervisors must also approve the selection.

Comments can be emailed to or mailed to Superior Court, Attn: Rolf Eckel, 120 S. Cortez #410, Prescott, AZ 86303.

All comments must include a name, as Mackey will not consider anonymous comments, and your email or phone number will allow the staff to contact you if they have questions.

The deadline for comments is March 15. Mackey is expected to have a decision by the end of March.
