TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Supreme Court has named a legislator and two district court judges to the commission that reviews complaints against judges.

The Supreme Court announced the appointments Wednesday for the Commission on Judicial Qualifications. Members serve four-year terms.

The new appointees include state Rep. Valdenia Winn, a Kansas City Democrat who has served in the Legislature since 2001. She's a history professor at Kansas City, Kansas Community College and will fill one of four spots on the 14-member commission for non-lawyers.

The district judge-appointees were Brenda Cameron of Johnson County and Larry Hendricks of Shawnee County.

The Supreme Court also announced that it had reappointed Jeffrey Mason, of Goodland, as one of the commission's four lawyer-members. Mason has served on the commission since 2008.
