The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association, which represents more than 8,000 active and retired state troopers, endorsed Judges Mike George and Judy Olson, Republicans candidates in the race for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
They are also supporting Emil Giordano in his campaign for a seat on the Superior Court.
“Earning the trust of the Pennsylvania State Police Troopers Association for the primary election is a great honor,” Judge George responded.
“As a Judge with experience in both Common Pleas and Superior Court, I have seen firsthand in case after case the importance of our state troopers,” Judge Olson stated. “I have such admiration for our state troopers and the work they do to keep our neighborhoods and communities safe. State troopers are the first line of defense against crime. They deserve our praise and I am honored to have their support.”
In a letter to Judge Giordano, PSTA President Joseph R. Koval said, “…I am privileged to inform you that our members have unanimously endorsed your candidacy…”
“I have the deepest respect and appreciation for the men and women in law enforcement who selflessly put themselves on the front lines to keep our streets and communities safe, and I am honored to have their support in my race for Superior Court,” Giordano said.
Judge George currently serves as the President Judge of the 51st Judicial District, which covers Adams County while Judge Olson serves on the PA Superior Court. Meanwhile, Judge Giordano currently presides on the Northampton Court of Common Pleas.
