AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage announced two judicial nominations, which will face Senate confirmation votes on Sept. 27.

The governor seeks to elevate District Judge John O’Neil to the Superior Court bench, and to appoint Justice G. Arthur Brennan as an active retired justice of the Superior Court.

LePage said both nominees have distinguished records on the bench and were nominated on the basis of their qualifications and integrity, not politics.

O’Neil, a resident of Kennebunk, was nominated to the District Court by former Democratic Gov. John Baldacci in 2007.

Brennan, a resident of York, has served on the bench since 1982.
