The Northern District Conference of the Florida Federal Judicial Nominating Commission met in Tallahassee today to interview applicants for the position of U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Florida.

The finalist for this position is Edward M. Spooner, whose name has been forwarded to Sens. George LeMieux and Bill Nelson.

One of the men vying to become North Florida's next U.S. Marshal is a long time Big Bend lawman.

Ed Spooner, longtime undersheriff in Gadsden County, and then interim sheriff in Okaloosa County is one of two men scheduled to be interviewed for the job next Friday.

Marshals serve at the pleasure of the president, so it is not uncommon for new marshals to be selected with a change in administration.

The other candidate scheduled to be interviewed Friday is Mark Weimer, former police chief in Kissimmee.
