“Pennsylvanians have expressed significant reservations about the fairness of our courts. We know that the courts should not be partisan, and I have spent my career proving that courts can be fair, just, and transparent. I have been a Common Pleas Judge for nine years and a Judge of Elections. I will return that experience and sense of fairness to our courts.”
