“I have the utmost respect for the state’s Fraternal Order of Police and the brave men and women who serve in the Commonwealth’s law enforcement community,” said Fizzano Cannon.  “My grandfather served as a police officer and a local police chief, so I have a personal understanding of the dangers our men and women in law enforcement face on a daily basis. I also know the sacrifices they make to provide the citizens of the Pennsylvania a safe place to live, work, and raise a family.  It means a great deal to me to have the endorsement and support of our law enforcement community.”

Judge Fizzano Cannon’s experience and qualifications for Commonwealth Court have earned her many additional endorsements, including the Pennsylvania Professional Firefighters Association and the Pennsylvania State Building and Construction Trades Council.  In addition, Fizzano Cannon is the only candidate for Commonwealth Court to receive the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Judicial Evaluation Commission’s top rating of “Highly Recommended.” That rating recognized her exceptional background, knowledge, and experience and indicated the Commission’s belief that Fizzano Cannon is “capable of outstanding performance” on the Commonwealth Court.

The Commonwealth Court is one of Pennsylvania’s two statewide intermediate appellate courts, the other being the Pennsylvania Superior Court.  The Commonwealth Court, which is made up of nine judges, is primarily responsible for matters involving state and local governments, non-profit corporations and regulatory agencies.
