Wednesday’s Tribune offered brief analysis of the judicial races on next Tuesday’s electoral card:
Floyd County Superior Court 3: Three Dems vie for new judgeship, by Stephanie Mojica.
The new court, which takes effect in 2009, is being created to reduce the caseloads of the existing Floyd County Court, Floyd Superior Court and Floyd Circuit Court. The three Democrats vying for the nomination are Richard Bolin, Maria Granger and Stan Robison.
Floyd County Superior Court 1: Longtime lawyer challenging Orth, by Stephanie Mojica.
Defense attorney Michael McDaniel is running against incumbent Judge Susan L. Orth for a spot on the ballot for November’s Floyd County Superior Court No. 1 race.
Speaking only for myself, Stan Robison’s extensive non-sectarian legal experience speaks volumes, and he gets my vote in Superior 3.
As for Superior 1, it’s a tougher call, but to be perfectly honest, the skilled and curmudgeonly Michael J. is one of my foremost local heroes ... and it's not a bad idea to have at least one safecracker on the police force.
Readers, you may well feel differently. Let ‘er rip.
