Philadelphia Judicial Candidate Forum

Open Wards Philly-Meet the Judicial Candidates: April 20, 21, 22

Tonight I co-moderate the first of three Meet the Judicial Candidates, sponsored by Open Wards Philly. For purposes of disclosure, I am on the group’s Steering Committee and a member of their Communications Subcommittee.

The candidates forum will take place across three evenings on April 20, 21, and 22 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. The candidates running for Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia, which deals with a variety of consequential civil and criminal matters, will each speak for 15-minute segments to introduce themselves and field questions.
