realmen - Her victory is do to her experience and ideas she has for that court. My comment was not about the primary win, but in response to your comment that said the only reason she received the endorsement was because of Betras. Most precinct members take offense when others say we were SWAYED by someone. I can tell you for a fact that was not the case and once again she won because of her experience, ideas and hard work!!! Why you have it in for this woman is beyond me! You claim you know so much about her first hand and are afraid to expose yourself which makes me believe you are full of hot air!!!! What are you afraid of?

Maruca won because she took the time to contact each and every precinct committee member in person. I know because I was one of them! To me she has plenty of experience and plans to improve the court. The only reason it was close is because the Republican Party came out to support Sammorne, that's who Monroe thought would win, Rusu was second choice!

"I’ve always had the hope of being the probate judge, and now my dream came true." This comes from a person who isn't involved in the political process and worse yet he doesn't even VOTE! How could the governor think he made a wise choice?

realmen - that's the difference between you and me, I do care who wins probate judge! I care who wins all the races, I just don't vote to vote I vote to try and make a change for Mahoning County. And talk about getting "facts" straight she is not a student at YSU but an instructor. All you had to do is read the article, Probate Court Candidates, where she lists it as part time employment. As far as me understanding business I knew he had to buy her out the only dispute I have is that you claim fired I claim leaving on her terms!

Realmen - think how can a partner get fired!!!! They dissolved their partnership and that's all there is to it! It happens all the time. Betras has had a few old partners if you think back. Secondly, the HANDFUL of attorneys that your talking about are the kind that I nor would anyone I know would hire. REMEMBER that endorsement really didn't go to him anyhow that should say it all. Lastly, as I stated earlier as far as endorsements that they interviewed for, yes had to interview for and give all their qualifications to, Maruca 12 Sammarone 0, How can soooo many organizations be so wrong!!! The right choice MARUCA for probate judge.

Did I read HONOR'S College at the University of Pitts, Duquesne University, which is one of the top law schools, and graduate school under Maruca's education history. Talk about intelligent. We need a smart and compassionate person to run the probate seat and she is your candidate! Vote Maruca for probate judge on May 6.

First, lets talk about how Sammarone got many if not the majority of his cases since 2008, Belinky. The probate judge assigns many of the cases that go in front of their court to an attorney of their choice! The judge also has the power to assign attorneys to be on certain boards! Example, Belinky gave Sammarone the board position for MCBDD, and look what has happened there. How come there has been nothing noted in the paper on how he has let that board down! If any organization needs to have a comfortable work environment it is MCBDD. Their job is stressful enough without having a hostel work environment. Lastly, Sammarone's advertisement is appalling. He really never says anything about himself to prove how good he is, he just tries to BEAT the other down, tacky. If Maruca is not qualified then why has she been endorsed by ALL the large organization that count. Each one of those organization Sammarone applied and INTERVIEWED for and did not receive. All Sammarone has to hang his hat on is the one that had no interview process and actually they chose Belinky over all of them go figure. Mahoning Valley needs a change and it starts with MARUCA!
