    Despite a predicted low voter turn-out, Pennsylvania’s municipal primary election has chosen party candidates for many local offices throughout the state’s 67 counties. On today’s Radio Times we’ll focus on yesterday’s poll returns including the Philadelphia City Controller Democratic candidate who will go up against Republican Terry Tracy in November. Civic activist Brett Mandel and former city attorney Mark Zecca have challenged two-term incumbent Alan Butkovitz. Then, we’ll look at the value of Philadelphia’s Traffic Court, where the winners of three (out of seven) vacant positions may never get to take their seats as the state Senate passed two bills last month to abolish the besieged court. The House is expected to pass the bills next month. Our guests are WHYY senior reporter DAVE DAVIES and LYNN MARKS, Executive Director of Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts.
