ChamberPAC, the political arm of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, has endorsed Megan Sullivan in her campaign to serve as a Judge of the Pennsylvania Superior Court. As the bipartisan political voice for the state’s business community, ChamberPAC works to create a climate in the Commonwealth that benefits job creation and economic growth.
“ChamberPAC makes endorsements for individuals seeking public judicial office carefully since we know the important role they play in ensuring justice for all citizens of the Commonwealth,” said Gene Barr, President and CEO of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry. “We believe that Megan Sullivan’s dedication to ensuring equal access to justice; commitment to fair and impartial application of the law; and knowledge of the issues facing the Commonwealth’s business community, makes her the best candidate for Pennsylvania Superior Court in the upcoming General Election.”
Megan Sullivan is a veteran litigator with twenty years of legal experience as a criminal prosecutor and civil attorney. She served as a Deputy Attorney General in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General from 2017 until this year, when she began her run for the Superior Court. Megan also worked for a decade as an Assistant DA, Supervisory DA, an assistant general counsel to West Chester University, and spent several years in private practice.
“I appreciate having the support of ChamberPAC, which serves as the voice for many of Pennsylvania’s job creators and a significant portion of the state’s business community,” said Megan Sullivan.
Megan Sullivan will appear on the statewide ballot in November 2021 to fill a vacancy on the Pennsylvania Superior Court. The Superior Court is one of Pennsylvania’s two statewide intermediate appellate courts, the other being the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court. The Superior Court is often the final arbiter of legal disputes. The Supreme Court may grant a petition to review a decision of the Superior Court, but most petitions are denied and the ruling of the Superior Court stands. Cases are usually heard by panels of three judges sitting in Philadelphia, Harrisburg or Pittsburgh, but may also be heard en banc by nine judges.
