SUPREME COURT CANADIDATE SAYS LEGISLATIVE APPROVAL OF PAY RAISE UNLIKELY—Ann Crowell, a Republican-Conservative candidate for a seat in the 4th Judicial District, says a commission's recommendation justices get their first pay hike in 12 years will likely not receive final approval in her opinion. She says the rationale behind the pay raise, to attract the best and brightest to the bench is ok, but the increase is uncalled for in the current economy. Three seats are open in the 4th JD this year; the local seat held by Justice David Demarest is not open this year. Incumbent GOP-Conservative Justice John Lahtinen is running to keep his seat. Democrat John Silvestri and Republican-Conservative Robert Chauvin are also running.
