The political equivalent of a civil war in Lakeview apparently will not break out this year after all. Assistant City Attorney Joe Landry has decided not to run for judge of Traffic Court in the April 4 election and instead will run for judge of Municipal Court. That clears the way for fellow Lakeview resident Mark Shea to run as the only Lakeview candidate in the Traffic Court race. The irony of this development is that Landry now will run for the judgeship being vacated by Sheas father, Judge John A. Shea, who announced last week that he will retire upon reaching the age of 75 on May 9. John Shea has served as Municipal Court judge for 30 years.
