He didn't run over my fence. I am an upstanding citizen and have no personal dealings with Boggess but know he has not done well in the job he has, one he truly does not deserve!! No offence, since you are a Democrate - explains why you would be happy with a candidate that has not deserved the position. I know alot of people who will not be voting for him from both parties.

How has he not done a good job? Please share the examples of failure...

I like them both (Omar and Timm), problem for Timm is that " If it is not broke, why fix it"

He was appointed to complete judge saddlers term. Then after that he ran and was elected. I know Tim and I know Omar. This will be a tough choice for me. I like them both. I think they both have good and bad qualities. I think Tim has done a good job as prosecutor. I think Omar has done a good job. I guess they will fight it out in the elections.

Will not be able to vote for either candidate.Regardless of parties.

Boggess protects drug snitches and Omar (with Paige Flanigan) protects child abusers.

Hopefully someone else with merit will step up.

Lets hear what you know or are you just blowing smoke. If you had any idea of an incident then it would be onhere already. Boggess as done a good job, and so has Omar so far it will come down to money and contacts.

I AGREE. People .... this is a very important time and election we are approaching. Not since the 2000 election after David Knight's seat became avaiable and Derek Swope won have we had a race for a judges position until this period of time. They always ran unopposed. While rarely amusing, there are complete a**holes who come here just to start B.S., chime in where they have no knowledge of ANY facts and sling crap on people.

WITH THAT SAID ... It would be nice if this thread could stay on point with factual imformation and thought provoking - objective discussions. Sad as it is, we adults who come on here know this won't happen. Just thought I'd give it a try.

two nice men, both qualified...it will come down to who works the hardest...I doubt either is perfect, and I'm sure they've made mistakes...Omar has been a practicing attorney, magistrate judge, city of Princeton Judge, he works in charities too numerous to mention...he works in the schools and is Santa at Christmas... he is genuinely good-hearted and is doing a good job as a sitting Circuit Judge...you are certainly free to disagree and vote otherwise or neitherwise...just try not to slander people with falsehoods as you hide behind your pseudonym...

All of the court house team seem to be good folks.
So why change them?
The new Guy in the Clerks office is really working hard also. Good Nature and a good all around person, and well educated in the job.
So lets just keep them we can't get any better, but we could get worse. So lets not take that chance.
