RETENTION ELECTION

CANDIDATE RATINGS

The below candidates are current judges whose terms are coming to an end. As with all judges in the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania, they will all run unopposed in the Nov. 2 general election, when voters will be asked if each judge should be retained for another 10-year term in a  “yes” or “no” referendum. 

 

The members of the Allegheny County Bar Association, many of whom practice before these judges, were asked if they recommend the four judges for retention. All four candidates were recommended for retention by the ACBA.
