The 8th Ward is proud to endorse Judge Timika Lane for the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.

Judge Lane will be an excellent Superior Court Judge, thanks to her deep commitment to public service and extensive community involvement.  Elected to the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas in 2013, Judge Lane has presided over criminal matters, and recently was tapped by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to co-chair a new statewide Committee on Adult Probation and Parole, formed to advise the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.  Recommended by the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Judge Lane is a very strong writer and brings keen insight from her career chapters as in family law private practice, the Public Defender’s Office, legislative constituent services, and teaching.  She teaches continuing legal education courses to improve the legal profession.  Judge Lane will be an excellent statewide Democratic candidate in the general election this November – as Republicans will try to gain political control of that Court and it is overwhelmingly white.  We need Judge Lane’s experience and perspective on the Superior Court:  13 of its 14 Judges are white, and the Republicans are trying to win control of the Court, which is now evenly split.
