Well that will end the bids of the two used cops who were running.

Back to the carpet shop for one of them.

He!!, I'd recommend him.
He was an SOB as a prosecuteo. Give him the Judge's power, he'll be tougher.
But, he is fair and unbiased.
Just don't break the law.

One of the few announcements that I've heard a person was actually qualified for and above that he has the fairness and most importantly common sense for the job. VOTE Reilly!!!

Wow do you have something against retired policeman who risked their lives to keep you safe? Everyone running has the same opportunity to win the office. Besides you don't need to be a lawyer to be a district judge. Do you even know what one does? Maybe you should read up on it. Policeman have court with the district judge every week. Im sure their knowledge is quite enough for the job.

If the people running were not qualified then they wouldn't have been able to register to run. Everyone running meets the requirements for the job. If you don't agree then maybe you should try to get the requirements for york county district judges changed. If you read the requirements they have to attend classes after they are elected. So if you have the capability to learn then im sure you can do the job.

The reason everyone is leaving is because of Kearney.

I'm glad an attorney is running for district judge. Three years of law school, a bar exam, and seven years at the DA's office; plus a reputation for being tough but fair. I think Reilly is one of the few candidates that is MORE than qualified for their office.

If you worked in the DA's office and had Karen Comery supervising you, you'd be looking for a way out, too.

Karen is a mean-spirited, dictatorial boss who is pointlessly and constantly hypercritical and vicious.

Why did Seamus Dubbs leave? Why is Tom Reilly looking for an exit? Scott McCabe? Jannen Tallo? Andy Petsu? Heather Reiner?

Who am I forgetting?

The office has been utterly gutted of mid-level, experienced staff. Virtually all have left in no small part because of Karen Comery. I have no idea why Kearney doesn't get rid of her.

If he got rid of her, he might be able to hold on to some of the remaining experienced and qualified staff.

It's a real shame.

I couldn't agree more. It seems, and from what I've heard, that Kearney has no control over her. But hey, she's running for Judge. Hopefully she won't get elected. I'm sure she'd carry all of that over to bench where it would likely be worse. Maybe if Kearney got smart and canned her it would end her political career! Who'd vote for her for judge if she got canned from the DA's office?

Chris Moore, Jeff Boyles, Pete Vaughn, and Jeff Rowe. It's a revolving door lately.
