Whoever the state cops endorsed is who I vote for. The state police seem to rule the world. They are the best police in the county.

Looks like Kirkpatrick has a better education, and a lot of experience in the legal profession. Do you voters realize that in Pennsylvania a Magisterial District Judge gets paid $82,000 per year ? No wonder these guys are after it.

Go with the qualified guy - Kirkpatrick. DJ Jazzy Jeff does not have the needed background.

Jeff Joy answers phone calls and replies to emails.

He has not forgotten that a public servant SERVES the public.

I have known both candidates for many years and based on my knownledge of each of them, I will be giving my vote to Mr. Joy. I have heard a number
of complains on the quality of Mr. Kirkpatrick's performance in both his civil and criminal practice over the years.
I believe Mr Joy has a well rounded background and
most important "GOOD COMMON SENSE" to bring to
the District Judge position.

I answer phones and reply to emails, too. That qualifies me to be a receptionist, not a district justice.

What "legal" education does Joy have? Seems to me that if you are a Judge, you should have a education that supports that position. Does he have that?
