Judge Kane planning to run for re-election

March 05, 1998|By Caitlin Francke | Caitlin Francke,SUN STAFF

Howard County Circuit Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. will run for re-election this fall, hoping to keep the seat on the bench that he has held for the past 16 years.

By law, circuit judges must run for re-election the first year after they are appointed and then every 15 years.

Kane, 59, who is also the county's administrative judge, was appointed to the circuit bench under the administration of former Gov. Harry R. Hughes. Previously, Kane served five years as a District Court judge in Howard County.

A Columbia resident, Kane graduated from Loyola College and earned a law degree from the University of Maryland.

Kane's re-election committee, chaired by Columbia attorney Thomas Meachum, plans to hold a fund-raiser in June.
