One day after Judge D. Todd Ehlers announced that he would not seek another term as Door County’s Circuit Court Branch One judge, Jennifer Moeller is the first to publicly announce her intentions to run for judge in April 2024. Moeller has served as the Door County Family Court Commissioner for the past 12 years. Moeller was a partner in the law firm and worked in private practice for over 15 years before becoming the Family Court Commissioner. She says all of her legal experience prepares her well for the circuit court judge position.
Moeller has volunteered for numerous local non-profit organizations for over 20 years and received the Anne Kok Social Justice Award from Help of Door County. Having been on the Sturgeon Bay City Council for two years, Moeller served on the Sturgeon Bay Police and Fire Commission for nine years, with seven years being the president. The non-partisan election for a six-year term as Circuit Court judge will be held on April 2, 2024. David L. Weber is the other Circuit Court judge in Door County for Branch 2 having been re-elected last spring.
