Inquirer Tells Voters to Consult Judicial Commission

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests voters turn to the findings of the Bar Association's Judicial Commission when it comes to choosing candidates in the May 19 primary.

In a May 8 editorial, the Inquirer wrote "One major deciding factor should be the ratings issued by the Philadelphia Bar Association, which puts dozens of volunteers to work conducting interviews and background checks. Receiving the bar's "recommended" rating should be the minimum hurdle. That eliminates 10 candidates."
