Judges, row officers sworn in
WEST CHESTER Two newly-elected County Court judges, Jeffrey Sommer and Patrick Carmody, along with three first-term row officers, were sworn in at the Chester County Justice Center on Monday.
Robin Marcello is now the county's clerk of courts. Norman MacQueen is the controller, and Gordon Eck is the coroner. Ann Duke was also sworn in for her second term as county treasurer.
Four judges retained during the November election - James P. MacElree, Jacqueline Carroll Cody, Edward Griffith, and John Hall - were also given the oath of office.
The ceremony, hosted by Chester County Republican Chairman Val DiGiorgio, was attended by State Reps. Duane Milne, Warren Kampf, John Lawrence, Dan Truitt, and Becky Corbin as well as Superior Court Judge Paula Francisco Ott and a former justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, William Lamb, according to a county spokeswoman.
The ceremony was originally scheduled for Friday but was delayed due to bad weather.
