“Judge Anne Lazarus is the most qualified candidate to restore trust in our Supreme Court. We need her ethics and sense of fairness on the bench,” said Arkoosh.
In addition, Arkoosh cited Lazarus’s rating from the Pennsylvania Bar Association as proof of the candidate’s capabilities: “When Judge Lazarus’s qualifications were vetted before the Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Bar Associations, she received their highest rating – ‘Highly Recommended.’ The Pennsylvania Bar Association describe Judge Lazarus as ‘a gifted and thoughtful legal scholar” and as ‘a person of the highest integrity.’”
Lazarus started out her judicial career in 1991 in Pennsylvania’s Court of Common Pleas after being appointed by Gov. Casey. She worked her way up to Superior Court Judge — her current position — after she won the 2009 election.
