HARRISBURG, PA – Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon, a candidate for Commonwealth Court, is pleased to announce that she has received the unanimous endorsements of both the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association and the Pennsylvania State Police Pioneer Lodge 37.
The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association represents 8,000 current and retired state troopers across the Commonwealth and the Pennsylvania State Police Pioneer FOP Lodge 37 represents current and former state police members in southeastern Pennsylvania, including Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.
“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of both the Pennsylvania State Trooper’s Association and Pennsylvania State Police Lodge 37,” said Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon. “I have great respect and admiration for the sacrifices and bravery of the men and women in law enforcement for what they do every day to keep communities across Pennsylvania safe. I am proud to have the support of our state troopers for Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court.”
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.
Fizzano Cannon currently serves as a Common Pleas Court Judge and is running statewide as a Republican to fill one of two vacancies on the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. Her experience and qualifications have earned her a number of endorsements, including the statewide Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police, the Pennsylvania Professional Firefighters Association, and the Pennsylvania State Building and Construction Trades Council.
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.
