Phil Crawford was running for judge, but came in second in yesterday's election. Usually candidates for judge are unwilling to take any stands on any real issues, except to say that they are against crime and to cite personal endorsements.
Crawford actually had some experience working for the family court in another county, and took a stand against the reliance on bogus shrink reports, as I quoted yesterday. He might have helped reform the local family court. I hope that his candidacy drew some attention to the problem. Good luck to him.
