Ward Leader Transition

The 8th Ward is proud to share that Larry Farnese, our Ward Leader since 2011, is running for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. The Code of Judicial Conduct requires judicial candidates to resign from political party positions, so Larry resigned as our Ward Leader in order to run for Judge in November 2022. The Ward thanked Larry for his dedicated and heartfelt leadership, and elected Elaine Petrossian to succeed Larry as our new Ward Leader.
