He is an idiot. Egotistical d-bag. Really hope someone better decides to run for the open chair.

Carol, right on!
Kelly is another of the Roger Richards crew, he is superior to the rest of us.
Richards had him propped up working at his office for a while, now the wealthy republicans will give him endless amounts of cash to campaign with and he will "see things their way". An ass clown!

There are a number of people who are going to run, Bob Sambrouk has the support right now to win. I agree, I met Kelly a few years ago and he is in love with himself.

Amen people. We don't need no stinking republicans running for office. We have narcissistic democrats who are more qualified. We need more liberal judges. The change must be implemented locally as well as federally.

He normally ignores people who aren't on the Board at Kahkwa but I saw he and his wife trying to be friendly at the Barber Center Christmas Dance - they looked very uncomfortable.

He is all that and a bag of chips, just ask him.

His sister Libby is a peach but Bill truly is a big tool.

Now he'll be forced to be nice to people because he needs votes.
Normally he doesn't give anyone below him the time of day.
Let's hope the Erie voters see thru him like they did with Janet Anderson (aka Roger).

John Mizner would be a great judge. He could transform the landscape.

I watched TV 24's coverage of the press conference. I scanned the crowd and didn't see one face I recognized. Then it dawned on me that the press conference was held in the intermodal so the crowd was actually the people waiting for the next Greyhound Bus.

If we don't take our republican party back from this country club set we will never win another national election. This is a prime example. This has to stop. The republican party stands for common sense, freedom and small government. These idiots are so out of touch with the common man. They only cry for freedom when it infringes on their ability to make money. Rarely do their children serve in the arm forces. They do not represent the average freedom loving american. Just as the democratic party was hijacked into abortion and gay marriage by a particular slice of their membership we republicans have watched our party hijacked by the country club set.

They should require judges to run as independents; all of the candidates in the primary and the top two in the fall. No party affilitation.

Only at the local level; the appellate judges run with one party, supposedly to prevent one candidate winning both primaries. The cross-filing often makes the judicial candidates cozy up to both party leaders, magnifying rather than minimizing their obligation to political power brokers and agendas. Political parties are for legislative and executive offices, not for an independent judiciary which faces only retention elections every 10 years.
