Luzerne County Judge and Controller

Governor Rendell will get to appoint a successor to Michael Conahan as Judge of the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas and a county Controller to succeed new Commissioner Maryanne Petrilla.

For the Judge spot 3 people have expressed an interest. CV: Attorney C.J. Bufalino III is interested... and Attorneys Tom O’Connor and Eugene Sperazza also have hinted they may seek the appointment.

Another Controller hopeful has applied. TL: Tony Lombardo, 70, said he has submitted his resume because he has business management and supervisory experience.
“I want to get in there with a basic principal that I will be a public servant and not a politician,” Lombardo said.

I'm still laughing about Wil Toole wanting the job and Augie Piazza is still planning to apply. Ashley Mayor Rick Oravic’s name is also being mentioned along with former Commissioner Ed Brominski and retired state rep Tom Tigue.

Rapid Edward can't run again so hopefully he will ignore political considerations and pick the best people for the jobs.
