Rhode Island Judicial Nominating Commission
The Providence Journal reports the law governing the Judicial Nominating Commission sets out that “no person shall be appointed at any time to serve more than one term” on the commission. Yet Governor Chafee’s latest appointee to the commission, D. Faye Sanders, previously served on the commission. Chafee selected Sanders in January from a list provided by Senate Minority Leader Dennis Algiere. “At the end of the day, I was having trouble finding people willing to serve,” Algiere said.
