A RAY OF SUNSHINE

This is too good to languish in the comments section of the blog:

Everyone --

Good news from Philadelphia. Today we had a city and state election for court justices and judges, as well as District Attorney. Lawrence Krasner, far and away the most progressive candidate in the field, won the DA race. He is a defense lawyer who represented participants of the Occupy Movement and Black Lives Matter. Several progressive judges were also elected. Finally, we have a new progressive City Controller, Rebecca Rhynhart. This is how it starts. I feel hopeful -- at least for now.

This is good news, and I'm glad to say that I voted for Krasner and the others yesterday morning. I didn't expect him to win, so it's a very nice surprise. It was an election with no national and no non-judicial state-wide elections, so I'm glad to see that the "right" people turned out. It's hard to know who to vote for in these things. PA doesn't do a good job of providing information about judicial candidates, for example. (Colorado does the best of places I've lived.) I was fortunate to have a good friend from white water kayaking who is a Philadelphia public defender, and so am typically able to outsource my questions about judicial elections to him.
