Episcopal Church Deputy appointed husband’s successor in NC race

Episcopal Church Deputy appointed husband’s successor in NC race

Tess Judge, Treasurer for the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina and Deputy to General Convention, has been named by her local Democratic party to replace her husband on the ballot for State House Representative. Warren Judge died over the weekend following a brief illness.

The Outerbanks Voice reports:

Democrats voted today to name Warren Judge’s wife Tess as the nominee for the District 6 North Carolina House of Representatives seat.

Judge, a Dare County commissioner for 16 years, died over the weekend after a short illness.

Tess Judge, who has long been active in local community work, accepted the nomination, according to a statement from the Democratic Party House District Executive Committee.

The committee voted by acclamation to name her as her late husband’s replacement. Ballots cast for him during early voting and on Election Day will go to her. She will serve out the two-year term if elected, the statement said. …

[Tess Judge] is also treasurer of the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina, and member of both the executive council for Province IV of the Episcopal Church, which includes 20 diocese in nine states in the southeastern U.S., and the General Convention of the Episcopal Church.

Judge is running against Republican Beverly Boswell in the North Carolina race.

Sad to say, she lost in a close race, 51% to 49%.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
