Very good picks John Paul.

Why Necaster over Tocci? Tocci was recommended by the bar association has 20 more years of experience over him. I would like an explanation.

Yeah, that’s a weird pick. I also disagree with Egley. If challenges in the Commissioner office (and I voted for her) were too much, she won’t be any better off in the Treasurer’s office. We don’t need someone who bails when the going gets tough. Plus, the Treasurer should have fiscal experience and Bohach has that.

Yeah, I’d also be curious to know on what basis that selection was made. Tocci is far-and-away the more qualified candidate.

I agree. Tocci is by far the more experienced candidate . In fact I would not be surprised if Necaster was talked into running by his boss in order to get more republican voters to come out. Necaster has to be the least experienced and ill prepared judicial candidate to ever run for judge in Beaver County. More so than any other elected office experience in all phases of the Office of judge is vital and Necaster lacks even the basic understanding of civil law. Just like his boss lacked and still lacks the basic understanding of criminal law. Learning on the job is not what you want when a judge is deciding the fate of your case.

Hi Janice- from the research I’ve done on these two candidates, Necaster has far more criminal experience than Tocci, who only deals with divorce and personal injury cases. Common pleas is 80% criminal cases.
Laura Tocci says that 90% of the Bar Association rates her as highly qualified. However, only 111 of the 172 took this survey.
64.5% of bar responded and she got 90% of that vote recommending her. BUT- she only got 58.05% of total bar recommending her. The survey she has repeated over and over is a process designed for a specific purpose. Whose turn it is to be judge. Don’t you think we should let the people decide and not a survey done by all of her friends?

It is skewing the facts to say that 80% of trials and Common Pleas is criminal cases. That is not true. To the contrary, most citizens will find themselves or someone they care about involved or embroiled in a family law case before they are involved in a common pleas criminal case. Moreover, every one of our sitting judges has criminal law in their background, some extensively, while only one sitting judge has concentrated experience in family law. All new judges start out in family law and Necaster has zero experience in custody, divorce, PFA, etc. Same with civil law. Our court needs another judge with experience in civil law. Again Necaster has zero experience. Tocci has the experience and temperament needed to enhance the Court of Commom Pleas of Bever County.

Rossi has absolutely NO experience, NO education, and NO qualifications. Jodi Hill has all three!

How can one possibly endorse this clown?….

Agree with the rest, but a cable guy over a legal eagle???

Sheesh!

Mike may not have the experience, but Jodi Hill is a crazy person. One look at the lunatic ravings on her Facebook page and she makes Roseanne Barr look normal and well-adjusted.

Rossi can learn how to do the job. But you can’t learn how not to be crazy. Otherwise, this county would be in much better shape.

No Dave Rossi. Lazy and Inept. No Sandie Egley. A whiner . No Danny Camp. Inadequate. Kress seems as goofy as Tony Guy. Neither seems like a good option.
