MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers announced today that he is seeking applicants for the Kenosha County Circuit Court – Branch 3. The appointment will fill a vacancy being created by Judge Bruce E. Schroeder’s retirement, effective Nov. 27, 2023. The new judge will complete a term ending July 31, 2024.

Applicants with questions about the judicial selection process may contact the Governor’s Office of Legal Counsel at (608) 266-1212.
Governor Evers’ appointment, however short-lived, will likely be the liberal candidate to run for the full term this Spring. Two far-left, little known lawyers are already broadcasting their intention to seek appointment and or run for the new seat. Western Kenosha County lawyer Frank Gagliardi (D), whose family had donated thousands of dollars to Evers and other Democrats, will likely make a second attempt at being appointed by the liberal governor. He was rejected by the governor in 2019, but he and his father are confident in this appointment because of their family’s almost $50,000 in donations to Wisconsin democrats over the years.
Gagliardi has been investigated and disciplined by the Wisconsin Supreme Court office of Lawyer Regulation.
Long-time liberal Roberta Pointill is also talking about applying for the position. She, like Gagliardi, has donated to Evers and other democrats over the years. Pontillo has dreams of becoming an activist lawyer like her number one hero, RBG.
