NorCo Judicial Debate on October 29
When you elect a judge, the term of office is ten years. If an incumbent judge wants to remain on the bench, there's a retention election. o essentially, one he or she sis elected, we're stuck. That's why a judicial race is so important. Attorneys Sam Murray and Vic Scomillio will cross swords on Thursday October 29, 7 pm, at the Northampton County Courthouse, in what will be their first and only judicial debate. I'll be interested in hearing Vic explain how he expects to be elected judge after costing the County $300,000 for violating the constitutional rights of a County worker. I'd like to know how he can claim to be compassionate when he fires someone by phone, and just two days before Christmas. I'd like to know his role in some of the ridiculous legal decisions made by Executive John Brown, which include trying to balance a budget with an illegal $20 million line of credit and hiring a public relations consultant on the taxpayer dime. Should be fun!
