FROM THE COVERAGE

Messam told The Post that he supports making Election Day a national holiday. “But we also must remember that there are a great number of people, especially those at the lowest rung of the economic ladder, that may not be eligible for such a holiday,” he said. “That’s why we need mail-in-ballots and early voting.”

“I think lifetime appointments to the bench have warped the system, with each side picking younger, less experienced judges because they are hoping to hold seats for decades,” Messam told The Post. He backed a 15-year term limit.
