All seven of the Associate Judges who serve in the Fourth Judicial Circuit have been retained by the circuit judges.
The Associate Judges are Ericka Sanders, Bradley Paisley, Jeffrey Marc Kelly, William Becker, Allan Lolie, Junior, Kevin Parker and James Eder. The Fourth Judicial Circuit includes Marion, Clinton, Fayette, Clay, Effingham, Shelby, Christian, Jasper and Montgomery Counties.
All of the associate judges had been recommended for reappointment in a recent Illinois State Bar Association poll of member attorneys.
The results were much different in the the circuit that includes Madison and Bond Counties where five of the 13 associate judges fell short of the minimum 60-percent majority support from the circuit judges to maintain their jobs.
