He is unopposed in the Democratic Primary. Judge Kase was appointed to the bench in July 1971 by Governor Bruce King to succeed the late Honorable Garnett R. Burks.

AT 4:45 P.M. TUESDAY city policeman Ted Murawski Jr. and Charles Rogers received a call concerning a bomb threat by phone at the Tribe of K. At the time the two were responding to a similar threat at the high school. Store owner Mrs. Rees reported that a high voice, possibly that of a juvenile girl, had advised her a bomb had been set for 10 p.m. City police searched the store, roof and area but found no evidence of a bomb as did the State Police and Sheriff out at the high school. Both were crank calls.
