*Statewide judicial races determine our human rights, political districting (which affects who wins congressional and presidential elections) and all other aspects of life in the commonwealth.

PA Supreme Court: we did not connect with the Woodruff campaign until a day before the vote. Based on good faith, dashed-off answers, we can almost endorse--but we’re unclear on one or two significant issues. Given that his opponent is bad on a range of our issues, we nevertheless strongly suggest you vote Dwayne Woodruff (Honorable Mention). We re-endorse Justice Debra Todd for retention.

**Commonwealth Court: we have two non-standard endorsements. Ellen Ciesler’s history and responses to other groups confirm that she’s good on all our issues. Due to our error, we did not get her questionnaire. We nevertheless endorse her. Technical problems on our end also prevented Irene McLaughlin Clark from answering half the questions. Given the importance of these seats, Clark’s excellent answers to the bulk of the questions and her strong background, we also endorse her.

VOTE Tuesday November 7, 2017!
