The Nov. 5 election is almost upon us and electing good judges is a vital part of this election. We will be voting on two statewide judicial races and it is imperative that those we elect understand that their job is to interpret the law, not to make law, as did our Supreme Court in the redistricting case.
The Pennsylvania Constitution gives the court the ability to approve or reject a redistricting map, but not to draw a map themselves. Our Constitution reserves this exclusively to the General Assembly and the Governor; nevertheless, our Supreme Court decided they could draw the map, and did. We cannot have a continuation of this blatant disregard for the Constitution by the very ones invested with protecting it.
