Holmes and Washington County Attorney Jeff Goodman has been selected as the newest judge for the 14th Judicial Circuit.

Goodman will fill the seat that will be vacated when 14th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Hentz McClellan retires later this month.

Goodman currently serves as attorney for Holmes County Board of Commissioners, Washington County Board of Commissioners, Holmes County School Board, Washington County School Board, the Town of Esto, and the Town of Wausau.

Goodman was selected Friday out of six names submitted to Governor Rick Scott by the Judicial Circuit Nominating Commission.
