Two Anne Arundel County Circuit Court judges are seeking voter approval for full 15-year terms on the bench.

Gov. Parris N. Glendening appointed Nancy Davis-Loomis, 54, of Annapolis to the judgeship in 2000, and tapped Paul A. Hackner, 53, of Annapolis in June. Hackner was filing paperwork to keep his post at the same time he was being sworn in.

The judges, who had been appointed by Glendening to the District Court, are unopposed on the ballot. They have held no fund-raisers, although they have attended meet-the-candidate events.

"I try to give decisions that are fair to the litigants," said Davis-Loomis, a former juvenile court master who served as a District Court judge from 1996 to 2000.

"I try to be thoughtful, and I try to be fair," said Hackner, a District Court judge from 1997 to 2000.

The Circuit Court has 10 judges who hear civil, criminal and family law cases.
