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.
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.
