The editorial staff of OVC has been contemplating what type of coverage to afford to the Luzerne County judicial race. We have made our decision. We will be contacting all 17 candidates and asking them to forward to us any and all press releases. Those press releases will be posted in their entirety.
We will occasionally comment on the race, but for the most part, we will let our readers read what the candidates have to say in their own words. The local newspapers receive press releases and generally do one of two things -- they don't print them at all, or they cherry pick quotes which the editors or reporters believe are newsworthy.
