Judge races, tax property issues go before voters next month

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A seat on the Supreme Court and other appellate races are on the statewide ballot next month in Pennsylvania.

The Nov. 7 election pits Justice Sallie Mundy against Allegheny County Judge Dwayne Woodruff.

Mundy is a Republican who was appointed to fill a vacancy last year. She wants the seat for a full 10-year term.

Woodruff, a Democrat, is a former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back who became a lawyer while playing in the NFL.

The election also features races for Superior and Commonwealth courts, and numerous local contests across the state.

There’s also a referendum that could eventually help lawmakers and local officials lower taxes on residents’ homes, although that would likely require some other form of revenue to replace them.
