Boseman leads group of politicians seeking new offices


We now know what Julia Boseman plans to do after she leaves the State Senate. The New Hanover County Democrat tells us she wants to run for district court judge.

There's a new judge's seat up for grabs in the New Hanover-Pender County judicial district, created because of our population growth. Wilmington attorney Chad Hogston is planning to run against Boseman. He's a Republican, although judicial races are non-partisan.

In Pender County, F.D. Rivenbark has announced he will run for the 16th District seat in the State House. That's the seat currently held by Republican Carolyn Justice. Rivenbark is currently a County Commissioner for the Burgaw district. He's also a farmer and retired principal and teacher.

Dewey Hudson recently announced he will not seek another term as District Attorney. He's running for State Senate instead hoping to represent Sampson, Duplin, and Lenoir Counties in Raleigh. Hudson will run as a Democrat seeking to fill Charlie Albertson's seat. Albertson announced last week he is retiring after more than 20 years in the Senate.

The long time Clerk of Superior Courts for New Hanover County is retiring. Brenda Tucker has held the job for the past 20 years, but says she won't seek a sixth term.

Yea thats what we need!

Was there not a confession by her of drug use? marijuana..Cant remember but it was during her court troubles?? Any help here


Is Boseman kidding, or what? People want their judges to be scholarly, unassuming, principled and basically b-o-r-i-n-g.

She's got supremely salacious details about her private life already in the public purview, in addition to questionable real estate issues and financial dealings. Some would call into question whether or not she should still even be holding a license to practice law.

Judgeship: no way.

Now There is

a frightening thought. With her legal troubles of the past year or 2, is Ms. Boseman the best choice to sit in judgement of others?

Granted, she's not been convicted of anything. But foreclosures and the circumstances surrounding the sale and near foreclosure of the Brunswick County house she had sold, should cause voters to question he judgemental skills.

Julia---pay your taxes?

How in the world does JULIA BOSEMAN think she is qualified to JUDGE ANYONE when in recent past she has failed to pay her taxes???

She is a CHEAT!!! And what about that poor family that was buying a home from her---and Julia failed to use the payments to pay the mortgage???---the home was nearly foreclosed on.

Julia for "justice" ???----LOL...what a laugh!!!
