Barb Hollenbach Running For Northampton County Judge

Bethlehem attorneys Barb Hollenbach and Karl Longenbach probably would deny this, but I graduated from law school with both of them. Really! In fact, I first met Barb when I accidentally pulled her underwear out of a Carlisle dryer, thinking they were mine. It was an honest mistake and she forgave me.

In law school, Barb was a law review editor, an honor only accorded to the better students. After graduating, she clerked for President Judge Williams and then went into private practice. She's been a lawyer for the past thirty years.

Last weekend, she announced her candidacy for one of the unprecedented three judicial vacancies on the ballot this year. About two hundred people attended her campaign kickoff, including Northampton County Council Prez Anne McHale, State Senator Lisa Boscola, Bethlehem Controller Meg Holland and gazillionaire Linny Fowler.

Without question, Barb has the intelligence and temperament to make an excellent judge. Voters will have a tough choice this year because many excellent attorneys are planning to run. You can read more about Barb at her web page, located here.

Is she pushing McHale? Is that why she arangd the award for McHale? It all sounds very insider.
Apparently Boscola hates Stoffa and wants McHale to run.
Problem is a few more are running.

Hollenbach has little chance to win and no chance if Morganelli runs.

Agreed.

McHale thinks she can beat Stoffa. I do not believe anyone can beat Stoffa.
