Sala gets highest rating from lawyers in three-way race for Erie County judge
Participation in the poll was 53%, with 213 valid ballots received out of 403 issued. Candidates were rated on competence, integrity, temperament, and experience. Sala, a sole practitioner who handles criminal and civil cases, scored the highest in each category, followed by Mikovch in second place and Orton in third. Sala, who has previously run for Erie County Common Pleas Court judge, expressed gratitude for his ranking and said it reflects his hard work over the years.
The Erie County Bar Association conducts these polls to provide insight into the qualifications of judicial candidates, as assessed by their fellow attorneys who work closely with them. In the May 16 primary, Sala is the only candidate with a “highly recommended” rating, while Mikovch is “recommended” and Orton has no rating.
