Municipal Judge Kathleen Jenks Gets Sworn In

MISSOULA -

After winning the election for Missoula's Municipal Judge, Judge Kathleen Jenks was sworn in on Friday. City officials gathered in Courtroom 1 in Missoula Municipal Court room for the ceremony.

Jenks took over as municipal judge two years ago, and will now serve in the position for another four years. Jenks was appointed to the job her first term, so this is Jenk's first election win.

"It does feel different, of course, because I've been here two years. I have an emotional investment in what we've done that I didn't have last time, and of course, I'm really grateful to Missoula for electing me," Judge Jenks said.

Jenks won the election with 44% of the vote, beating out Mark McLaverty and Leta Womak.
