The three candidates running for a vacant judge spot on the York County Court of Common Pleas will greet voters and answer questions later this month.

York College and the county Bar Association are hosting a meet-and-greet event from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 30 and a question-and-answer session afterward until 9 p.m. at the college's DeMeester Recital Hall.

The candidates are Red Lion-based attorney Jonelle Eshbach and York City-based attorneys Matt Menges and Sandra Thompson, all of whom are facing off in the May 21 primary election. Judicial candidates typically cross-file in the primary so that their names appear on both the Democratic and Republican ballots. 

G. Terry Madonna, director of Franklin & Marshall College's Center for Politics and Public Affairs, will be moderating. A variety of community leaders and attorneys will also ask questions.

The event is free and open to the public.
