Magisterial District Judge Roy Manwaring Defeats Will Carpenter in North Bethlehem

Magisterial District Judge Roy Manwaring will remain on the bench in North Bethlehem. Unofficial results from Tuesday's municipal primary reveal he edged out Democratic challenger  Will Carpenter by 22 votes to secure the Democratic nomination. Manwaring ran unopposed on the GOP side. 

Manwaring drew the ire of President Judge Michael Koury twicewin recent years for (1) assessing court costs against an innocent parking ticket Defendant and (2) permitting constables and police officers into his secretarial areas.

This was sad to see.

Although it was close and I am sure Manwaring was sweating, none the less, he will gloat over this close margin win and undoubtedly try to go back to his old ways.

I don't think he realizes that he is not as well liked as he thinks he is.

It is unfortunate that races, basically, this small do not garner enough attention from the public so that voters can make a better choice, at least in this case..

Thank you Bernie for your updates and reports.
