Two Lewis County lawyers got a boost today fromt the largest circulation newspaper in the six county Fifth Judicial District. Michael Young and Charles Merrell of Lowville were among four picked by the Post Standard to serve as justices of the NYS Supreme Court. Conservative John Stone got the nod and so did Democrat Patrick MacRae.
The Post Standard rejects the so called "gentleman's agreement" keeping a local resident judge in each of the six counties.
