Marion Co. Chairmen Handpick New Judges
Yesterday, Marion Co. GOP Chairman Mike Murphy and Marion Co. Democrat Chairman Ed Treacy, announced their picks to fill the 2 vacant judicial spots for the superior court. They are Lisa Borges, chief deputy in charge of trial prosecution in the Marion Co. prosecutor's office, and Steven Eichholtz, a former judge. The nominations were made necessary by a new law which added 3 new superior court spots for the county, from 17 to 20. Each party nominated 9 candidates in the May primary. The two new appointments bring that number to 10. All 20 candidates will win election in November unless by some stroke of luck a Libertarian candidate manages to pull an upset.
