AUGUSTA — Republican Gov. Paul LePage is looking for candidates to be considered for vacant positions on the Maine Supreme, Superior and District Judicial courts.

LePage’s office said Friday that the governor’s Judicial Selection Committee will accept applications until Jan. 28.

The governor said he’s looking forward to “selecting candidates of the highest ethical, legal and intellectual caliber to fill these positions on the bench.”

His administration says those who may have submitted an application before July 1 and want to be considered now should send another letter of interest.
