On Judge Farmer's position

Daniel Gilbert has this article about the legislature failure to fill the juvenile judgeship in the 29th district.

As regards the prospect that the circuit court judges will reappoint Judge Farmer, Senator Puckett is quoted as saying, somewhat ominously, "The judges in the 29th Circuit could have an opportunity to reappoint him if they think I’ve made a bad judgment."

Someone told me the other day that Judge Farmer cannot be reappointed by the judges, per some provision in the Code, but I can't find any such limitation. See, e.g., Va. Code 16.1-69.9:2.
