Marysville lawyer selected to fill judgeship

(KMZA)--A private practice attorney from Marysville has been selected to fill a district magistrate judge vacancy in Clay County.

According to a release from the Kansas Judicial Branch, the 21st Judicial District Nominating Commission Thursday selected John McNish to fill a vacancy created by the death of former District Magistrate Judge William “ Bill” Malcom, who was killed in a car crash last October.

The 21st Judicial District is composed of Clay and Riley Counties.

McNish was among three nominees interviewed for the position. The other two nominees were Dan Brenner of Holton and Audrey Waid of Clay Center.

McNish currently works for his own firm Bolton & McNish LLC in Marysville. He has been a licensed attorney for 42 years.

He will serve one year in office and then stand for a retention vote in the next general election to remain in the position. If retained, McNish will then serve a four-year term beginning in 2025. His current term starts effective immediately upon his swearing-in.
