Governor Appoints New Circuit Court Judge

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead has appointed Shelley A. Cundiff as the new Circuit Court Judge in the Fourth Judicial District, made up of Sheridan and Johnson Counties. Cundiff will replace Judge John Sampson who retired.

“Shelley has great common sense, the right temperament for the bench and a strong respect for the U.S. and Wyoming Constitutions,” Governor Mead said. Cundiff lives in Dayton and practices law in Sheridan County. She is originally from Oklahoma. She has also worked as a Magistrate and a Municipal Judge in Sheridan County.

“This is an honor I take very seriously. I look forward to the challenges presented with this opportunity and to further serving the people of Sheridan and Johnson Counties,” Cundiff said.

“I thank the Judicial Nominating Commission, all those who expressed interest in serving and Judge Sampson who is retiring after many years on the Circuit Court bench,” Governor Mead said.
