Vast salary disparities between magistrates

There are 1 comment on the Bluffton Today story from Jun 23, 2012, titled Vast salary disparities between magistrates. In it, Bluffton Today reports that:

They're all considered judges but aren't required to have a law degree. They hear the same types of cases, such as landlord-tenant disputes and traffic tickets, meet the same qualifications, pass a certification exam, and are appointed to four-year terms by the governor upon the advice and consent of the Senate.

Too whom it may concern: After reading your article about the Magistrates and them not having to have a law degree to become one, I wonder how someone can get on the list to become a Magistrate in the town of Ridgeland or Jasper County? Because I know someone who was a police officer for a number of years, and has completed extensive studies in Paralegalism, which in cludes LandLord Tenant Law, Mediation, Victim Witness Advocate,as well as several others. And know they would love to move to the little town of Ridgeland and become a Magistrate.
