Bulletin: Governor appoints Mary Roth Burns to the Oneida County Circuit Court

History was made Friday morning when Gov. Tony Evers announced his appointment of local attorney Mary Roth Burns to the Oneida County Circuit Court.

Burns, a veteran of the Wisconsin State Public Defender's Office and a Rhinelander resident, will be the first female judge in the history of Oneida County.

Her appointment will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Patrick O'Melia earlier this month. She will complete a term ending July 31, 2023.

A judicial election will take place in April to determine who will take the bench for the new term starting in August 2023.

"Mary Roth Burns is a well-respected attorney with a breadth of legal and professional experience," Evers said in a press release announcing the appointment. "Her dedication to the community and tireless commitment to the ideals of the law will make her an excellent judge for the people of Oneida County."

Burns worked for the public defender's office from 2008 until August 2021. She then opened her own law practice in Rhinelander, representing clients in criminal and family matters. She also has extensive experience working with the Vilas County/Lac du Flambeau Healing to Wellness Court and has been working to implement a treatment court in Oneida County, the release states.

A full story will be published in the Tuesday edition of the River News.
