Alabama state finance director Jim Main has been tapped by the governor to become a judge on the Court of Criminal Appeals effective tomorrow. Assistant state finance director Bill Newton will serve as acting finance director until a replacement for Main is announced. 

“Jim Main’s commitment to public service, his work ethic, his legal background, his character, the unique perspective he’s gained from a diverse background, all these things make him absolutely the best choice for this judgeship,” Gov. Bob Riley said in a release.
