Yellowstone County District Judge Gregory Todd announced Monday that he will seek re-election to his second full term on the bench.
Todd, 57, was appointed by then-Gov. Marc Racicot to the 13th Judicial District for Yellowstone County in December 2000 to replace retiring Judge Maurice Colberg Jr. Todd ran unopposed for the six-year term in 2002.
"I've served seven years, and I hope to continue to serve the people of Yellow-stone County," Todd said in his announcement.
Judge G. Todd Baugh announced last week he also will seek re-election as a District Court judge in Billings. Baugh, 66, will be running for his fifth term. The terms of the remaining three District Court judges - Russell Fagg, Susan Watters and Ingrid Gustafson - expire in 2012.
A Billings native, Todd graduated from the University of Montana School of Law in 1977. He worked three years as a deputy prosecutor in Bozeman before returning to Billings and working in private practice before his judicial appointment.
The official filing period for local elected offices opens Jan. 22 and closes March 20. The general election will be Nov. 4.
