Governor Bob Riley has appointed Ozark Municipal Court Judge Stan Garner as Dale County’s new district court judge. The position was left open due to the untimely death of Judge George Trawick.
Garner says he made it known that he wanted the job, and the interview process went very fast. Still, he contends he was pleasantly surprised to receive the call from the governor's office.
He's been in private practice in Ozark since 1991.
