Now There Are Three Lawyers Who Wish to Succeed Judge Jackie Taschner

Leo Jackson
The race to succeed Magisterial District Judge Jackie Taschner is getting crowded. I previously told you about the candidacies of Attorneys Susie Hutnick and Lisa Spitale. Now a third lawyer, Leo P Jackson, has entered the fray.

Jackson is a native of Scranton, home of the famous Texas Weiner and white pizza. He is a graduate of  Loyola College (1992) and Weidner University School of Law (1995). While in law school, he interned with the Baltimore City Public Defender’s Office, Dauphin County (PA) District Attorney’s Office and the Honorable Judge Sebastian D. Natale of the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas.

Jackson currently practices law with his sister, Janet Jackson. She is the Chief Assistant Public Defender in Northampton County. His emphasis is workers' compensation.  

He lives in Forks Tp with his wife, Laurie, and two children. His son is attending Easton Area High School and his daughter just graduated. 

Jackson has been an active member of his community. He is a former member of the board of the Northampton County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (now Center for Animal Health & Welfare). He has also coached youth softball and baseball in the Forks Township recreation league.

As a judge, he says he would focus on "protecting our community while focusing on social justice and fairness and treating all with dignity and respect.”

A judge should be focused on interpreting and applying the law in a fair and equitable manner. This guy seems to be more interested in social justice and racial politics than anything else. He's cut from the same cloth as Larry Krasner. I can see him releasing violent criminals with little or no bail to continue terrorize our citizenry. He must be rejected!
