Molly Hanlon Mirabito running for Luzerne County Judge

Karen Leonardi called me tonight and asked if I'd mention on the blog that Molly Hanlon Mirabito, a fellow BOR graduate (class of 1980), is running for Luzerne County Judge and needs your vote in the primary and election. We hope that she can count on votes from fellow BOR alumni. Molly has a website that lists her experience and qualifications along with her campaign theme - Embrace Our Future. I encourage you to check it out.

Here's the announcement from the Citizen's Voice:

Hanlon Mirabito declares she’s in judicial race

FORTY FORT — On the front porch of her childhood home, surrounded by her family, friends and neighbors, Molly Hanlon Mirabito announced Monday she is seeking one of the three open Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas judicial seats.

What better place to make the declaration, she said, than the site of some of her most beloved memories, the place where she learned her values from her parents, Tom and Norita Hanlon.

“I can think of no one who’s more loyal or compassionate or honorable than Molly,” Kathy Hanlon said in introducing her sister.

Due to the cold, Hanlon Mirabito cut short the speech she delivered to approximately 80 people. She said there is a serious war on crime and residents need a voice.

“I am unabashedly confident in my ability to be that voice,” she said.

Hanlon Mirabito, 46, graduated from Bishop O’Reilly High School and King’s College, and received her law degree from the University of Notre Dame. She started practicing in 1987 and specializes in family law.

She served as an assistant district attorney under five of Luzerne County’s DAs; she is a member of the special victims unit. The Luzerne County Court appointed her as a per diem law clerk to visiting senior judges, and she has served as a special master in divorce and real estate equity cases.

Hanlon Mirabito has volunteered on several boards, including that of the Forty Fort Ambulance Association, VISION and the Family Service Association. The Forty Fort native lives in the borough with her husband, Michael, a professor at Marywood University.
