If Judge Paksoy is re-elected in November 6, 2018 he will reach the maximum age limit for service as a judge on July 31, 2020. If re-elected in 2018, he will be faced with mandatory retirement after serving well short of the full new term. In this situation, NC law requires that the age-retired judge will be replaced by Democrat Governor Roy Cooper. The Governor would then appoint a replacement for a District Judge, an individual who would serve out the term of the Judge forced into age-related retirement.
Plainly speaking, if Judge Paksoy is re-elected in 2018, he will be forced into retirement in July 2020 when he will be replaced by a Judge appointed by Governor Cooper. The citizens who vote for Judge Paksoy in 2018 will find out that their Judge of choice will be replaced by a Judge selected by a Democrat Governor, not one chosen by Lincoln/Cleveland voters.
When The voters go to the polls on November 6, 2018, and faced with two well qualified candidates, they must decide if they want to vote for an individual who will serve as a full time/four year Judge, or to vote for a temporary occupant of the bench and who will relinquish that bench to Governor Cooper short of a full term. For the voters of Lincoln and Cleveland Counties the issue comes down to the choice of who you want selecting your next full term District Judge, you the voter or Governor Roy Cooper.
