Question: In what context does our author make this autobiographical assertion?
It is the beginning of his capsule biography in the Allegheny County Democratic Committee Voter Guide for the May 2023 primary elections. He is running for judge in the Court of Common Pleas. Our candidate continues: “Helping people in the courts takes the same passion, fearlessness, and mental flexibility.”
Dr. Boli does not usually make particular endorsements of political candidates. But he believes that the Court of Common Pleas would be rendered infinitely more entertaining if a few bulls were set loose in it, so he willingly endorses Anthony Deluca for judge on the condition that he undertakes to continue his apparently longstanding habits.
