DENVER — Wednesday, March 7, 2018 — Gov. Hickenlooper today signed Boards and Commissions appointments to the 12th Judicial District Judicial Performance Commission and Board of Mortgage Loan Originators.


Commissions on Judicial Performance provide voters with fair, responsible and constructive evaluations of judges and justices seeking retention. The results also provide judges with information to help improve their professional skills as judicial officers.

The State Commission promulgates the Rules Governing Commissions on Judicial Performance and evaluates the Supreme Court justices and Court of Appeals judges. District Commissions evaluate the performance of county and district court judges in their judicial district during the judge’s current term of office, which is the past two years for new (provisional) judges, the past four years for county court judges, and the past six years for district court judges.
