Statewide elections were held Tuesday to fill seven vacancies on three statewide appellate courts: one on Supreme, four on Superior and two on Commonwealth. Five Democrats and two Republicans prevailed - all of them women. Also passing was a statewide referendum to allow the General Assembly to pass a bill enabling 100 percent of the value of a homestead property to be exempt from property taxation. Those and the ramifications of other elections will be discussed. Our guests this week are: Sam Janesch, staff writer with LNP, Chris Potter, reporter with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and Dave Davies, senior reporter with WHYY-FM, Philadelphia. Our host is Brian Lockman.
