Pennsylvania: judge puts sheriff referendum on fast track

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports: Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Eugene B. Strassburger III has until March 28 to decide whether a referendum on making the sheriff an appointed rather than an elected position will be on the ballot in May.

That leaves very little time for the attorneys challenging the legality of the referendum, and those from the county supporting it, to get their arguments before the judge. -- Judge to decide on sheriff referendum
