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.
Quick update folks ! Democrats came out in force for the November 8 Election and our 8th Ward is *currently* #1 in the City for Ward votes for Shapiro / Davis, and tied for #1 for Ward votes for Fetterman!
Our Committee People worked incredibly hard to reach our Democratic neighbors to help them VOTE in this election! Great work !
