AUGUSTA — Gov. Paul LePage’s Judicial Selection Committee will interview six candidates for a Superior Court justice position next week.

The committee will forward its recommended finalists to the governor for him to interview, according to Dan Billings, chief counsel to LePage. The governor will interview the finalists himself, Billings said.

The plan is to post the name of the nominee by the end of the month, Billings said.

The names of the applicants are not being released.

The committee chose the candidates it will interview from a pool of more than 30 applicants. Some applicants first joined the application pool when a District Court vacancy came up and others applied after the Superior Court opening was announced.

The Superior Court position will be open due to the retirement of Justice G. Arthur Brennan on Aug. 26.
