Guam - While there's been a lot of focus the Decision 2012 election on the senatorial race and Proposal "A", voters will also find two judges on the general election ballot. Residents will have the chance to decide on the judicial retention of Superior Court Presiding Judge Alberto Lamorena and Superior Court Judge Arthur Barcinas.
The Guam Bar Association recently conducted a survey among its members announcing today that 87% of the bar believed Lamorena should be retained as a member of the trial court bench, while 74% of the bar members feel that Barcinas should be retained. Every seven years Superior Court judges and every ten years Supreme Court justices are left at the mercy of the voting public, who decides if they should remain on the bench.
