When the Pennsylvania Democratic Party held its endorsement meeting for the May 19 primary election, it endorsed only two candidates for the three open seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and it fell short of endorsing anyone for the single open seat on the Pennsylvania Superior Court.
Accordingly, the executive committee of the Montgomery County Democratic Committee made its own choices last Thursday night for the open positions and voted unanimously to endorse Anne Lazarus for Supreme Court and Alice Beck Dubow for Superior Court.
Judge Lazarus, a former judge of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, was elected to Superior Court in 2009. She joins state party-endorsed candidates Kevin Dougherty and David Wecht as the choices of the Montgomery County party.
Judge Dubow, a lawyer in private practice for 23 years, has been a judge of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas for the past seven years.
Marcel L. Groen, the Montgomery County Democratic chairman, hailed Lazarus and Dubow as exemplary judges with superb qualifications who will be strong contenders for the party in the November general election.
The executive committee met in Plymouth Meeting at the offices of Local 1776, United Food and Commercial Workers.
I plan on voting for Anne Lazarus for Supreme Court. More on my reasons for this shortly (I hope).
