Not All DJs Voted in Magisterial Realignmnet

I told you Monday that the Northampton County Magisterial District Judges Association voted by a bare majority, 8-7, to endorse a proposed plan that abolishes the Bethlehem Township Magisterial District. I was informed that all district judges, or their proxies, voted. That is inaccurate.

I learned yesterday that, though the vote was by bare majority and secret ballot, not all District Judges participated or even designated proxies. I am also informed that some Senior District Judges, who still belong to the judge club, voted.

I have a lot of respect for the SR. MDJ's but I don't think they should have voted. It should be for sitting Judge's only. This new proposal is a train wreck, hopefully the State Supreme Court will put an end to it.
