Eight seek Superior Court judge post, one slot available

Posted: Wednesday, February 18, 2009

FAIRBANKS - Eight attorneys are vying for one slot available on the Superior Court bench in Fairbanks.

Scott Mattern, last year's prosecutor of the year, is among the group seeking the $167,400-a-year job.

So is Bethany Spalding Harbison, a Fairbanks magistrate who was a finalist for the Superior Court two years ago.

Others hoping to succeed Superior Court Judge Mark Wood, who is retiring this summer, include: private attorneys Chris Bataille and Danielle Foster; Fairbanks Chief Prosecutor Mike Gray; Assistant Attorney General Gene Gustafson; District Court Judge Jane Kauvar; former prosecutor Michael McConahy; and former public defender Nelson Traverso.

The Alaska Judicial Council will present a finalists list to Gov. Sarah Palin.
