THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:
ELECTION UPDATE ..........
On the national front, eight weeks from today we will know who will be the 44th President of the United States.
On the local front, we have one open Circuit Court seat that will be decided by the voters in November: a runoff election between Steve Millan and Yvonne Colodny.
For those of you looking ahead, 2010 brings a host of new judicial elections. By January of 2009, expect to see candidates opening up campaign accounts.
Some of the seats up for election will be wide open as there are a few judges who are expected to retire, (including some because of the age restrictions).
The following seats are up for election in 2010:
In COUNTY COURT:
Ada Pozo Revilla
In CIRCUIT COURT:
Finally, regardless of your politics, please say a prayer on Thursday for the more than 3,000 innocent victims that died seven years ago. Our parents' Pearl Harbor Day is our 9-11.
