Uncle Irvin: Massey and Donze deserve support

03/07/2017 11:51AM ● By Richard Gaw
Among the important local offices that will be filled in the 2017 municipal election is that of District Judge.
The Oxford area district has been presided over by Scott Massey for the last six years. Massey, a former police officer, has done a very good job in his first term. Massey is not an attorney, and under state law had to attend District Judge school and pass a rigorous test in order to qualify. Massey has company in Chester County, where a number of non-lawyers sit as District Justices and perform well. Judge Massey has done everything to earn support for another term, and Uncle Irvin endorsed him for re-election.
The Kennett Square District Justice Dan Maisano is not running for re-election. Maisano is an attorney and he has performed well for a number of terms. Among those running for Maisano's seat is Jane Donze, an attorney in private practice in Willowdale. Donze has been endorsed by the GOP committee people in her district. Donze has an unblemished reputation, and with her legal background, should be an asset to the office. Uncle Irvin endorses Jane Donze for District Justice for the Kennett Square office.
