Judicial Primary Elections May 17

From the East Side Neighbors Blog:

Seven candidates are contendng for two seats on the Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas

Carlisle attorney and Cumberland County’s juvenile court dependency master Jim Flower

Cumberland County Senior Assistant District Attorney Christylee Peck

Magisterial District Judge Tom Placey

Carlisle attorney Jackie Verney

Mechanicsburg attorney R. Mark Thomas

Cumberland County Senior Assistant Public Defender John Shugars (no website, it seems)

New Cumberland attorney Elizabeth Stone.

The primary is May 17, 2011
