Judge not, lest ye--

In Geauga County, Chardon Municipal Court Judge Mark Hassett, who’s a Republican, one day filed candidacy nominating petitions to seek re-election. And then on Monday (Jan. 17) he announces he won’t run at all this fall.

Meanwhile, attorney Dennis M. Coyne, a Republican, bears petitions for the same bench. Also with petitions is attorney Terri Stupica, now undeclared by party; she voted Democrat in the last election.

But what about Dan Bond, the Muny Court magistrate who’s sat in as acting judge for Hassett? What if GOP fans and allies want to urge him to run for the bench?
