The voters of Westmoreland County will vote on November 5th on the question of whether Common Pleas Court Judge Christopher A. Feliciani should be retained for an additional ten-year term.
The Westmoreland Bar Association recently conducted a poll of its participating members to determine how the lawyers, who practice before these Common Pleas Court Judges, answer the question of whether Judge Feliciani should be retained. Individual members were asked to vote either “in favor of” or “in opposition to" retention.
The results show that Westmoreland Bar Association attorneys overwhelmingly support Judge Feliciani with a substantial majority “in favor of” retention in the November election. Bar President John Greiner announced the results as follows: Judge Feliciani – 96.55%.
"Member polls regarding the retention of local judges are an important part of our mission of community service and education," said Attorney Greiner. "Our goal in publicizing these results is to help voters be better informed when retaining judges.”
By law an incumbent judge can seek a new term in office on a “yes-no” retention basis in the general election. The election is non-partisan and non-political.
