McCaffery Announces Bid For PA Superior Court
The race for Pennsylvania’s Superior Court is on.
Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Daniel D. McCaffery announced his candidacy for the State Superior Court.
He’s served the last six years as a judge, and the previous 22 years as a prosecutor and civil trial attorney.
“As a soldier, a prosecutor, a trial lawyer, and a judge, I have spent my entire lifetime serving others,” he stated in his press announcement. “It’s what motivates me every day.”
He was elected to Philadelphia’s Court of Common Pleas in 2013 and believes his experience there and prior has prepared him to take on this role.
“I have had the honor of working in Pennsylvania courtrooms for 28 years: twenty-two years as a prosecutor and a civil trial attorney and the last six years as a judge. I am seeking a position on the Superior Court to continue my service to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and its citizens and to bring my lifetime of experience, hard work, and working-class values to the Superior Court,” he said.
His press release also boasted a great number of SEPA Democratic support including Philadelphia Democratic Party Chair Bob Brady, state Sen. Anthony Williams, former Rep. Patrick Murphy, and more.
His brother, Seamus, was elected to the state Supreme Court in 2007, but resigned in 2014.
One term on the Pennsylvania Superior Court is 10 years.
