The LuLac Edition #2367, February 26th, 2013

Qiana Murphy Lehman, a Pittston native, recently announced her candidacy for the office of District Magistrate Judge encompassing Pittston, Hughestown, Dupont, Duryea and Avoca. Qiana is an experienced trial lawyer who has prosecuted criminals with the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office and has significant trial experience on the civil law side working for local law firm, Brad and Grabowski. P.C. Prior to maintaining an office with Brady and Grabowski, Attorney Lehman established her practice in downtown Pittston. 
A Pittston Area Honors student, Qiana went on to graduate Summa Cum Laude from East Stroudsburg University, before attending Law School at New England Law in Boston, Massachusetts. Attorney Lehman graduated law school Cum Laude before returning home to raise a family. She is the daughter of Ann Marie Zaffuto and the late, Dick Murphy. 
Attorney Lehman cites her ten years legal experience and extensive practice in both the civil and criminal area among her qualifications for the office. The Dupont resident is the advisor to the Young Lawyers Club at Pittston Area High School and the Past President of the YLD division of the Wilkes-Barre Law and Library Association. 
In addition to her trial work, Attorney Lehman sits as a quasi-judicial officer serving as a Master in Divorce cases for Luzerne County. As a lawyer, Qiana, would be available on day one to work as the District Magistrate without having to take the Magistrate Judge Qualification test that is required for all non-lawyers. What Qiana has to say: "I have worked hard to prosecute criminals, defend working people's rights and raise a family. I'm not a politician; I'm a business person and mother of two who has the legal skills and experience needed to be fair and decisive. Working as your District Judge, I'll do the job like you would, with fairness, integrity and honesty."


Yesterday on NBC News, there was a story about the Sequestration. Lost in the story about how government agencies were trying to figure out how to make cuts was the fact that a Pennsylvania firm was going to be out of work because they advised Government department how to cut their budgets. 
These government agencies need paid consultants TO TELL THEM WHERE TO CUT THEIR OWN AGENCIES? They can’t figure it out on their own? 
Maybe these cuts might just be a good thing for some Agency Heads that can’t even figure where they could save money. Do they need a consultant to tell them the difference between Scott and Cottonelle?

The Luzerne County DA is not responsible for her Mothers actions, but she is responsible to be honest. When she states she has not discussed this incident with her family, she stretches credibility! I just dont believe her!As to the incident getting the same care and attention as with any other citizen, the jury is still out on that, but I doubt thats the way it will ultimately go down.

The electorate can't tell the difference between $h!+ and shinola.

Qiana is a quality individual with a great work ethic. I knew her father well and became acquainted with Quiana through him. I was impressed with her from the very first time I met her. I fear that lack of name recognition and the big bucks needed to run an effective campaign might be out of her reach. Too bad if that's true because she would make an outstanding DJ.

The only way our political leaders could solve the sequester debacle is if it affected their pay check.
Since it doesn't their merry life continues as usual.But the poor working stiff who will be effected by the up coming sequester,"Oh well" is THEIR answer on this whole mess.
An old saying.
"When your neighbor looses his job it's called a recession. When you loose your job it's than called a depression." Go figure.

What an incredibly sexist thing to say. Why not show us a picture of your legs? Oh wait, we already know what tree trunks look like.

If there was a way to post photos here; I would.

"incredibly sexist"?!

Sexist is a stretch.

What a perfect example of phony outrage and repressive tolerance.

Who pulled YOUR humor plug?

I feel sorry for you.

I like the way this candidate presents herself. Fair honest and impartial is what I am looking for, not the politician and political insider. Unfortunately for her I am looking at Atty. Mecadon as being more of the person for the job, but if a second place finisher like her was waiting in the wings its all good.

Atty Lehman seems to have gone to the Nancy Kman school of posting for photos. Wow is that one serious Come Hither look.
