Voter Registration Deadline Is Monday, October 5

Voter Registration Deadline Is Monday, October 5

September 29th, 2009

voterregDeadline is Monday for those who want to register to vote, change party affiliation or report a change of address in time to be eligible for the Nov. 3 Municipal Election. With just over a month remaining before votes are cast, the judicial race in Potter County is attracting the most attention. Steve Minor and Dan Glassmire are competing for a 10-year term as President Judge of the Court of Common Pleas.

Minor won the Republican nomination with 1,739 votes, compared to Glassmire’s 1,127. Glassmire earned the Democratic nomination, 582 to 562. Nearly 900 votes from both parties combined went to a third candidate, Bob Kuhl.

Winner of the Nov. 3 Municipal Election will take office in January. At that time, Judge John Leete, who has occupied the bench for more than 20 years, will begin his service as a senior judge eligible for assignment throughout the state. Many local offices are also on the Nov. 3 ballot, as is the position of Potter County District Attorney, where Andy Watson is unopposed.

Sure hope Steve Minor is our new Judge

12:00 am blogger -- we'll see. It all depends on if "you vote" Potter County.

Put Dan in. At least he has been in POTTER county practicing law. Steve works in McKEAN county

Each candidate is somewhat qualified. I believe Glassmire is more qualified if you really drill down into their careers. Minor is a really nice guy who cares about others. There has been a distortion by his campaign about his juvenile court master experience in McKean County. That is not even close to the type of work that goes into being a county judge. We are fortunate to have two good candidates in Potter County. I hope votes that are cast will be educated votes instead of a popularity contest. This is an important position.

Glassmire for Judge!

Anonymous said...

To his credit Mr. Glassmire has saddled up again for the November election battle and there is no question he has established some momentum. He really is the most qualified and experienced. Oftentimes in Potter County that has not mattered in an election but just maybe this will be an election where the voters get it right because they cast their ballots based on qualifications, experience and knowledge and passion for the law. If they do, Dan's the man. And in 10 years Steve may be ready to be the next judge.

1:28PM I couldn't agree more. How often it is who do we like as a person instead of qualifications. People if you cannot take the time to look at each individual and what they bring to the table for the job WE are paying them to do. Please don't take the time to vote. If you want to make a difference in Potter county know all the facts before you cast your ballot.

Steve M. is ready to be judge now, Dan needs a few more years to gather some more wisdom...

I wish we would have had more options for Judge & the D.A. Race.

I don't want someone who does what is politically correct, I want someone who does what is right, and I don't think we have that in the options we have.

You can say what you want about Dan's personality or arrogance or other stuff that might turn you off, when it comes to the law he has passion and knowledge and expertise and he has a very strong respect for the law and would apply the law based on that. And he has a lot more experience with the law than Steve.
Now I like Steve and as his career progresses I think he could become fully qualified and probably will.
But we have the right man for the job and he is ready for it and he did not allow the vote count from May to send him to the sidelines. People are coming around to see that now and separate personality and other aspects from qualifications and who would be the best judge.
If that trend continues, the most qualified candidate has a chance to win and that person is Dan Glassmire.
Vote intelligently and responsibly, please. Thank you for reading this.

Steve Minor ! everybody states he is a nice guy So is Judge Leete. I do not want a nice guy as Judge I want somebody who will sentence these Child Molesting Bastards to state prison were they belong. tough sentences takes these creeps off the street., and maybe out of the county forever. So don't tell me how nice a Judge is tell how tough he will be.

We all should remember that Dan Glassmire was Jim Leech's attorney and Dan is running against Steve Minor as our new judge.

Mr. Glassmire represented someone (Leech) that "took" land from someone else after they paid for it and paid taxes on it for years...2 families in Potter county had this done to them and Glassmire represented the land thief...that is enough for me to vote Minor as judge for sure!

even scum bags deserve representation

Go Steve Minor, the Galeton area voters should vote for you "hands down"!

Bobby said...

Qualified! Steve Minor Juvenial court experience is into the 1000s of cases. This is exactly the experience that Dan doesn't have and that is needed. Don"t mistake Steve's professional demeanor as a weakness Mckean County thinks of him in the highest regard and his win/loss ratio is 2nd to none. I dont want a judge that feels he earned it. I want a judge that
who deserves it. Steve Minor all the way!

To Bobby: You really need to understand what a "master" does in a juvenile court. There is no comparison to the application of complex laws to complex circumstances involving civil or criminal litigation. All I am asking is that you understand the actual role that Steve has played in McKean County with these types of cases. Many people who are not familiar with the way juvenile cases are processed mistakenly think that this experience is somehow relevant to the role that a Common Pleas Court Judge plays and if you learn more about it, you will see the difference and perhaps your perspective on these gentlemen's comparative qualifications will change. All I am asking is that you become more educated about the issue and be open to the possibility that you have not been well informed about the issue. Thank you very much.

Listen. Steve Minor has served as juvenile judge for 14 years. He hears cases,decides sentences then writes judicual opinions. For 14 years. No, it does not involve everything that is done by a county judge, but it's PART of it. Potter doesn't have a juvenile judge, so Judge Leete has been doing in Potter what Steve does in McKean as far as juvenile criminal matters go. So it's a PORTION of what Judge Leete does which is 14 years more judicial experience than Glassmire has.

Sorry, but personality and temperment DO matter! Glassmire is one of the most arrogant, pompous and rude individuals I know. It even showed through in his announcement! And remember, Dan did not just represent greedy Jim Leach with his lawsuit, he has Leach helping him with his campaign! Birds of a feather...

As for Mr. Glassmire serving in a professional capacity for his client in Galeton, an attorney by virtue of education and oath and ethical code is duty-bound to represent his client. This was a matter of law and not a matter of personal beliefs or biases. In this particular case, the client who was represented by Mr. Glassmire prevailed, which is a credit to his skills as an attorney rather than a criticism. It was, I repeat, a matter of law and professional responsibility. Somebody out there is stretching pretty far in an attempt to discredit Dan and try to manipulate the public. Would you have considered Dan more qualified for judge if he would have FAILED in representing this client in this civil matter? To those who are not biased, it would appear that he was successful in his advocacy for a matter of law that was ultimately verified and reinforced in the court setting. And you see that as a fault?

I am not at all uniformed. I do, however, apologize for my bad spelling. I wrote in haste and it was late at night. There is no better experience than what Steve Minor has been doing in Mckean county. Juvenile cases are a large part of what a Judge does in Potter County. It is valid "real world" experience. I have met both candidates and my opinion
of Steve is that there are very few people who exceed his character. Dan was not assigned the Leach case, he chose it. He could have declined.

You are so right!
And as the other blogger stated "birds of a feather", I too will be voting Minor in November!
