Candidates Line Up For District Judge Seat
At least two candidates plan to run for District Judge Gay Elwell's post, while an Easton attorney could announce her candidacy on Monday.
The race to fill Easton's vacant district judge seat could be a crowded one.
Last week, city code enforcement officer Sharbel Koorie announced his candidacy for the position left open by the death of Judge Gay Elwell.
On Friday, Lance Wheeler, a constable and former lead court officer in Northampton County, said he'll make his announcement January 15.
And they could be facing a third opponent: Easton attorney Antonia Grifo has scheduled a news conference for Monday to "discuss the Magisterial District Judge position."
Elwell, 54, died in December of natural causes. The county's retired district judges have been filling in until a new judge is elected or appointed.
