PA Primary: One Statewide Race, But Many Local Ones



Pennsylvania voters will be going to the polls a month from now to settle nomination battles over an open seat on the state appellate courts and mayoralties in cities from Pittsburgh to Scranton to Altoona.
 
Voters also will be choosing nominees for local judgeships, municipal offices and school boards in the state's May 21st primary. Property taxes, schools and other local concerns are likely to drive turnout more in some area, but analysts predict that only about one in five voters will go to the polls statewide.
 
The only statewide race — the Democratic contest for the open seat on Superior Court — pits an ex-policeman against an ex-pharmacist. Philadelphia Municipal Judge Joseph Waters is a retired police captain and Allegheny County Judge Jack McVay has been a licensed pharmacist since 1980.
