Accounting, 1992

Judge, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court

The Commonwealth Court is the least known of the three statewide courts and probably the least understood. Its role as both a trial court and an appellate court make it unique. The Commonwealth Court is the court that makes sure government, state and local, follows the law. I know of no other state where citizens have access to such a court to remedy their grievances against government.

I was elected to the appellate court in 2009 and sworn in to the Commonwealth Court in 2011 at the Lycoming County Courthouse, which gave me a chance to visit my hometown of Montoursville, and be only a few blocks away from where I was educated.
