"... About 20 people who have had traffic violation cases disposed of by Mr. Youngs so far this year will also have their cases transferred to Judge Holbrook ..."

Judge Young is superfluous.
He only presided over 20 traffic violations in 3 months!
PLus, he didn't know enough to run for his position during re election AND in the last 3 months didn't realize he was no longer the judge.

This should be obvious to everyone, his friends, family and himself, the county.
BUT, if there is a special election ($5000) someone will vote him in !
