Homerville - Three people being considered for appointment to a vacant judgeship were interviewed by the Governor Wednesday.

Alapaha Circuit Chief Judge Brooks Blitch resigned amid a federal investigation.

Macon Federal Prosecutor Donald Jonstono, Adel Attorney and Judge Howard McClain and Enigma Attorney Mickey Johnson were named the top three candidates.

Each met with the Governor and his executive council Wednesday morning. 

"They are being very meticulous in their approach to the appointment to make certain they appoint someone who is capable of taking over the situation on the bench as it is now in the circuit," McClain says after his 30 minute interview.

The Governor's office says there is no timeline for when he might make his decision.

The winner will remain in office until 2010.
