OWENS APPOINTS CHARLES R. GREENACRE TO 7TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT
DENVER – Governor Bill Owens last night appointed Charles R. Greenacre as district court judge in the 7th Judicial District, which includes Delta, Gunnison, Montrose, Ouray, San Miguel and Hinsdale Counties. Greenacre replaces the Honorable Robert A. Brown who will retire May 1, 2000.
"Chuck Greenacre’s experience as a county court judge will be a great asset to the district bench," said Gov. Owens. "His wide-ranging experience with civil and criminal matters, and his strong record of public service, reflect the best of the community."
Chuck Greenacre has served as a county court judge in Montrose since 1994. Prior to joining the bench, Greenacre was a sole practitioner from 1989 to 1994, and was a partner with Durham and Greenacre from 1980 to 1989. Greenacre served as a state public defender in Montrose from 1976 to 1980.
Greenacre is on the board of directors for the Montrose Chamber of Commerce. He received the Montrose/Olathe School-to-Career Partnership Award of Excellence in 1999 and served as a member of the District Judicial Performance Commission in 1992. Greenacre received his juris doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.
The annual salary for this position is $86,090. The initial term of office for a district court judge is a provisional term of two years, after which the incumbent must run for election to serve an additional six years.
