The Virginia Beach Bar Association’s Judicial Recommendations Panel met earlier this week to interview and evaluate candidates for two judgeships, one a circuit court seat, previously held by Judge A. Joseph Canada Jr., and the other a general district court position, previously held by Judge Virginia L. Cochran.
The results are in.
Three candidates were “highly recommended” for the circuit court seat:
• Former Del. Glenn R. Croshaw
• Glen A. Huff
• VB General District Judge Gene A. Woolard
Additionally, Chuck Smith was “recommended” for that seat.
Two candidates were “highly recommended” for general district court seat:
• Bobby W. Davis
• Afshin Farashahi
And six candidates were “recommended” for that judgeship:
• Christopher S. Boynton
• Tanya Bullock
• Kathryn N. Byler
• Karen L. Fortier
• Lisa S. Hodges
• Daniel R. Lahne
• Chuck Smith
The matter is now in the hands of the General Assembly, which will elect judges to these two positions.
