Governor Hogan has appointed Delegate Brett Wilson to serve on the Washington County Circuit Court bench. Delegate Wilson will fill the vacancy left by Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr. who retired in May.

The Herald-Mail reports:

After a careful and thorough vetting process, I am confident that Del. Brett Wilson is the most qualified individual for this position,” said Hogan said in a statement. “Del. Wilson has served the people of Washington County with distinction throughout his years in public service, and I offer him my sincere congratulations and wish him well in this new position.”

Wilson was elected to the House of Delegates in 2014 to represent District 2B and served on the House Judiciary Committee. The Washington County Republican Central Committee will begin the process to consider and submit candidates for Wilson’s replacement to Governor Hogan for approval upon his resignation from the House of Delegates.
