Governor Pete Ricketts has appointed Thomas Klein to the County Court seat for the Sixth Judicial District, which serves Burt, Cedar, Dakota, Dixon, Dodge, Thurston, and Washington counties.

A native of Wahoo, Klein has served as the Saunders County Public Defender since January of 1999.  He holds a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, received his Juris Doctor from Creighton University Law School, and is a member of both the Saunders County and Nebraska State Bar Association.

Klein fills the vacancy after Judge Kenneth J. Vampola resigned back in September.
