Judges– There are several candidates for each judicial opening. Due to unusual departures, there are several openings in the PA Supreme Court. Tuesday’s primary is a chance for a small dedicated subset of voters to define the tone of the PA Supreme Court for years to come. PA Supreme Court justices serve 10 ten year terms.
Important judicial positions will be decided in the fall and it is important for us to have the right candidates running. Pennsylvania Courts will be deciding important issues such as: voter id laws, redistricting, women’s issues, gun violence prevention.
