According to a news release from the Kansas Office of Judicial Administration, Jerry Kuckelman's name has now been submitted, along with three others, to Governor Jeff Colyer, by the 1st Judicial District Nominating Commission.

Colyer has 60-days to decide which of the four will fill the vacancy created by the June 16 retirement of Judge Gunnar Sundby.

The 1st Judicial District is composed of Atchison and Leavenworth Counties.
