Maybe the second time will be the charm.
Gov. Corbett has yet again appointed his onetime chief of staff to an Allegheny County judgeship.
Earlier today, the governor announced that he is nominating Bill Ward to the Allegheny Court of Common Pleas. Ward was Corbett's chief of staff for just under 18 months starting in 2011. He left the administration in May 2012 as the governor, battling sagging public approval ratings, was facing pressure to make changes to his senior staff roster in the administration.
