Dubow Seeks Endorsement from State Democratic Committee
A seven year veteran in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas veteran, Judge Alice Dubow is seeking the endorsement of the State Democratic Committee as she prepares to run for a spot in the PA Superior Court.
Dubow was appointed to the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas by former Governor Ed Rendell in 2007, and went on to preside over numerous cases of abused and neglected children. Prior to her appointment, she spent 23 years in the public and private sector, including a stint utilizing her skills in tax law as city solicitor with the Rendell Administration in 1992.
Dubow made clear that in her experience, the deciding factor should often be whether or not the accused presents a pattern of criminally bad behavior. She believes there is an important difference between someone who led a distinguished life prior to committing a crime and others. She intends to rule with this philosophy in mind.
For Dubow, sitting on the bench is a family affair. Her mother, the Honorable Phyllis Beck, made history in 1983 as the first woman appointed to the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Dubow, in seeking the endorsement from the State Democratic Committee hopes to follow in her mother’s footsteps in the 2015 General Election.
Dubow lives in Philadelphia with her husband Rob Dubow, who has used his finance expertise to advise Mayors Nutter and Rendell.
