The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association (PSTA), which represents 9,000 active and retired State Police Troopers, has endorsed Megan Sullivan in her campaign to serve as Judge on the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Sullivan, a former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General and Supervisory District Attorney, received the PSTA’s endorsement following a unanimous vote by the organization’s Board of Directors.
“The PSTA seeks to endorse candidates who have the best interest of Pennsylvania and its law enforcement community at heart,” said David Kennedy, President of the Pennsylvania State Trooper Association. “Megan Sullivan’s demonstrated support of law enforcement officers shows resolute determination in making Pennsylvania a safe place for our citizens to live, work and raise a family.”
“I am honored to have the support of the men and women who serve our Commonwealth as member of the Pennsylvania State Police,” said Megan Sullivan. “During my time as a prosecutor in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General and the Chester County District Attorney’s Office, I often worked closely with members of law enforcement. I have the utmost respect for their dedication and the risks they take on a daily basis to keep our communities and citizens safe.”
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.
