Jackson County Executive to
Announce New Prosecutor

May 6, 2011 (KANSAS CITY, MO) – Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders will hold a press conference this afternoon to appoint a new Jackson County Prosecutor. The press conference will take place at 1:30 P.M. on the 2nd floor of the downtown Jackson County Courthouse (415 East 12th Street, Kansas City, Missouri).

The appointee will fulfill the term of James F. Kanatzar who was sworn in last Friday as a judge on the 16th Judicial Circuit bench. Kanatzar had served as County Prosecutor since 2007. Melissa Mauer-Smith has been acting as the interim Prosecutor since Kanatzar left the office.

An advisory committee named by Sanders recommended three finalists to fulfill the remainder of Kanatzar’s term which ends on December 31, 2012.
