Here’s a LINK to a local news article from northeastern Pennsylvania reporting on the Pennsylvania Senate confirming the appointment of Attorney Kelly Gaughan to take over a vacancy on the bench of the Pike County Court of Common Pleas. The vacancy was created when Judge Joseph Kameen retired from the bench.
Attorney Gaughan, who won both sides of the May, 2019 primary election for the position, expects to be sworn in for the appointment in September of 2019 and serve out the remainder of the year. She will be the only candidate for the position on the November, 2019 ballot.
