[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"1330610","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"480","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"336"}}]] For the Superior Telegram    Douglas County Circuit Court Judges George Glonek and Kelly Thimm announced they will each seek another judicial term of office in the upcoming spring election April 7. “We share a passion for justice and a commitment to this community,” said Glonek. “We hope to continue to have the privilege to serve the residents of this county as members of our local judiciary,” Thimm said. Glonek has presided over Douglas County Circuit Court Branch 2 since Oct. 28, 2002. The governor appointed him to the bench following the death of former Judge Joseph A. McDonald several months earlier. Glonek was then elected as judge in 2003 and 2009. Thimm presides over Douglas County Circuit Court Branch 1. He was elected to the bench in 2009 after former Judge Michael T. Lucci retired after having served as a circuit court judge for 24 years. The current term for both Glonek and Thimm expires July 31. “I am pleased that both George and Kelly will each be seeking another term,” said Lucci. “The people of Douglas County appreciate their strong work ethics, enthusiasm for the jobs and their firm commitment to justice.” Both Glonek and Thimm were raised in Superior and each graduated from Superior High School. Following high school, Glonek attended Marquette University where he received his undergraduate degree and his law degree with honors. Upon his return to Superior, Glonek worked as a private attorney for six years until his appointment as Douglas County Court Commissioner by Judges McDonald and Lucci in 1997. Glonek held the position of Court Commissioner until his appointment as judge. Thimm received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota and his law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School. Thimm returned to Superior in 1997 when he accepted employment as a Douglas County assistant district attorney. He served in that position until he was elected judge in 2009. “Judges Glonek and Thimm have not only outstanding skills and knowledge as trial judges, but they are great community leaders offering their time and experience to various clubs and organizations,” said Douglas County Court Commissioner Rebecca Lovejoy. In 2010, Lovejoy was appointed by the two judges as the first female jurist to serve in Douglas County. Both judges are members of the Superior Optimist Club, and they have been attorney coaches for the SHS Mock Trial Program. In 2003, Glonek was recognized as the Outstanding Young Superiorite by the Superior Jaycees. Thimm received the same honor in 2007. Both men also were inducted into the Superior Academic Hall of Fame. Professionally, the judges have been involved with numerous committees including a committee on courthouse security and with the criminal justice collaborative committee. They also have worked as members of a team to establish and implement a drug court in Douglas County. “The judges are very professional people and excellent to work with for those of us in law enforcement,” said Douglas County Sheriff Tom Dalbec. Douglas County residents wishing to meet the judges and to sign their nomination papers can do so at the law offices of Cirilli, Gondik and Zuber, 1215 Belknap St., between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday.[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"1330612","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"480","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"305"}}]]
