Court of Appeals District Three candidate Judge Gregory B. Gill, Jr., submitted his nomination signature papers with the Wisconsin Election Commission on Dec. 30. Judge Gill was the first candidate to submit his papers with the WEC and sits well above the minimum threshold of 1,000 signatures.
Judge Gill has received a great deal of grassroots support from around the third district. According to his press release, Wisconsinites from over two hundred different municipalities and twenty-six different counties signed the nomination papers. Additionally, over three hundred signees have also signed up to volunteer on his campaign.
“We are grateful and humbled by the support for our campaign from all across northern Wisconsin. Thank you to the volunteers, circulators and signers who make up the growing grassroots movement driving this campaign. We look forward to the new year and next chapter of this campaign”, said Judge Greg Gill.
For the past nine years, Judge Gill has served as a Circuit Court Judge in Outagamie County. He was originally appointed to the position by Governor Walker, and has since been reelected twice.
Judge Gill has, thus far, been endorsed by a bi-partisan group of 7 sheriffs and 7 district attorneys, along with 83 current or retired judges including former State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, according to a press release issued Dec. 30 by his campaign.
The Wisconsin Court of Appeals is an intermediate appellate court, reviewing contested decisions of the Wisconsin circuit courts. The Court of Appeals was created in August 1978 to help alleviate the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s rising number of appellate cases.
The court’s jurisdiction includes most of the entire northern half of Wisconsin, including Lincoln County and 34 other counties. The district is headquartered in Wausau.
