Endorsement: Iacocca for District Justice

We have rarely, if ever, offered endorsements in local District Justice races. We remain uncomfortable with the idea of electing the judiciary — a needless introduction of partisan politics into our justice system. However, the race that has unfolded in District 15-3-04 — which encompasses the Unionville and Kennett areas — has been deeply disturbing in its level of nastiness since the primary...

Letter: Donze’s experience makes the difference in DJ race

To the Editor,   I completely agree with Mike McGann’s recent article, Mr. Iacocca is a very nice guy and community activist but we’re looking to elect our next district justice and need to do so carefully. As a licensed attorney and registered Democrat, I’m most concerned with putting the most qualified candidate on the bench.  Community activism should be applauded on all levels but in...

Strong passions — pro and con — surround Donze’s run for District Justice

By Mike McGann, Editor, the Times Jane Donze Jane Donze suggests that she isn’t entirely sure why she seems to invoke deep passion — both positive and negative — in her run for District Justice in 15-3-04, the Unionville and Kennett areas, but since the primary, she’s been both the recipient of enthusiastic support across the political spectrum as well as the target of criticism — again,...

Lettr: Donze is the choice for District Justice

To The Editor, Two candidates are in the race for Magisterial District Judge, Jane Donze and Al Iacocca. In all elected positions the voters are the employers, the candidates are applying for the job, the paycheck is nonnegotiable, and the term is fixed. So the Judge we hire, friendships and politics aside, needs to hit the ground running with the understanding and experience of the job, the law,...

Letter: Fair’s fair in district justice primary race

To the Editor, It’s important to set the record straight. There are misleading statements and information circulating around town regarding the Kennett Square District Judge race as concerns the professions and party affiliations of the five candidates. It should be known once and for all, that Mr. Iacocca is the one and only Democrat on the Democratic primary ticket, regardless of what has been...

Letter: Who is the best choice for district justice? I say Donze

To The Editor, In this crazy political time how does one even know the truth about a candidate or their real reasons for wanting a position? How do you cast your vote for the best qualified, ethical candidate that knows our communities and shares the values of our residents at large? …or doesn’t have a shaded past (which is a reasonable predictor of future behavior), or has the right...
