Luzerne County Judges

We will be electing 6 new Judges of the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas next month. There are 7 candidates and I have met 6 of them. They are all good people that will replace the disgraced Juvie Brothers Conahan and Ciavarella. LuLac tells about them: These convicted Judges were sneaky, conniving, vindictive, powerful and ruthless bastards. Ask a former Judge named Lokuta. I don't want to open the whole Lokuta thing again but me and the Yonk agree that she was fucked over by Conahan and the Judicial Conduct Board that had a few of his acquaintances sitting in judgement of her. She was not convicted of a crime and probably deserved a kick in pants but overturning an election is extreme.


5 of the 7 candidates secured the nomination of both the Democratic and Republican party's in May. I hate cross filing for Judge and School Board because these are political positions and we should decide in the general election not the primary. The convential wisdom is that the 5 who got double nominations will win although anything can happen. That's why we have elections.

The double five are:

Jennifer Rogers

Lesa Gelb

Mike Vough

Joe Skarosky

Fred Pieratoni

That leaves the odd man (person) out. The race for the 6th spot is between Rebublican Dick Hughes and Dem Molly Mirabito

This is a tough call for me. I have had a few discussions with Hughes and Molly. They both came to Blogfest and the lawyers I know highly recommended them both.

My solution to this delimma is to bullet vote for Mirabito and Hughes.

Dick Hughes is the person for the job. What you and Yonk think about anything is too much for me to bear. How about if you just write your blog and allow others to make comments, Neither of you have a clue about Anne L. and the job she did as a misfit judge. It was her former staff and attorneys who brought her down, not the 2 bad judges. How about the fact that they could not get Lokuta to go to work? How about the fact that she would leave people sit for houses while she took a nap and they crucified them if they got on with their own busy schedules? You two are capable of doing a great job but you also have a propensity to act like assholes.

"How about if you just write your blog and allow others to make comments."

That's what we do???

Lokuta wrote to JCB about Connahan and Ciaveralla's behavior which was read by their allies on the Board. Then Conahan orchistrated a campaign to get people to complain about her. Yes, she deserved some sort of discipline but removing her from the bench was extreme. She was never convicted of a crime and that should be the test for removing an elected official.

Thanks for the compliment.

I will be voting against Dick. He can stand next to that Stephanie woman as she spews half truths. If Dick had a set of balls he would speak out against these slanderous distortions. And who would better know the truth than an ADA who was there. All Dick and no balls loses my vote.
