Among three lawyers in the May 21 primary for Westmoreland County judge, Bill McCabe excels both in experience and in the respect of his peers. He's well-suited for a seat on Common Pleas Court.

Mr. McCabe, 57, a Democrat of North Huntingdon, has spent 32 years as a practicing lawyer, including four years as a county prosecutor. A partner with DeBernardo, Antoniono, McCabe, Davis & DeDiana, P.C. in Greensburg, he's experienced in civil, criminal and family law.

That level of experience and accomplishment was recognized last month when McCabe received the Westmoreland County Bar Association's President's Award for Professionalism. And in his first run for judge, he has picked up the overwhelming support of local lawyers participating in the bar association's survey of judicial candidates.

Of the three, all of whom have cross-filed for both the Democrat and Republican nomination, McCabe was recommended by 88 percent of the lawyers, followed by Republicans Meagan Bilik DeFazio, 38, of North Huntingdon, with 36 percent, and Harry Smail Jr., 47, of Hempfield, with 20 percent. Both Mrs. Bilik DeFazio and Mr. Smail ran for judge four years ago.

In play this year is one seat on the Westmoreland bench because of the mandatory retirement of Judge John Driscoll. Conceivably, one candidate could lock up the race by winning both the Republican and Democrat nominations.

The choice is clear. For Westmoreland judge, vote for Bill McCabe.
