Confused by the long list of candidates for judge on the upcoming primary ballot? You are not alone. Today's Daily News gives a sordid picture of the candidates clamoring for ward leader support, but even the overlapping endorsements being sent to me in the mail tend to muddy the picture as much as clarify it, since they just give lists, rather than descriptions of the candidates. Luckily, via Hallwatch, I find this Inquirer endorsement list from a week back, which does give qualifications and other information for the candidates included, a great help, and a list of those considered qualified by the PA bar. A little more fodder for the mill. Names that seem to come up positively on almost all the lists (ADA, NOW, Inquirer, even my Dem. ward leader) include ELLEN GREEN-CEISLER, ANN BUTCHART, MARILYN HEFFLEY, and GLENN BRONSON, but I suspect a few more will emerge from further examination. Every bit helps.
