Ed Mitchell Named to the Judicial Evaluation Commission for the 2017 Election Season

Mitchell Gallagher attorney C. Edward S. Mitchell was again named to the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Judicial Evaluation Commission for the 2017 election.

The Commission begins the process of reviewing candidates for statewide judicial office as soon as the candidate announces for office. Candidates are interviewed. Questionnaires are submitted to the candidate and then thoroughly reviewed and researched. The Commission then meets to compare notes and begin the evaluation process. Meeting for several days in January 2017, the Commission was then able to issue ratings for the candidates, either highly recommended, recommended or not recommended.

This important process relies on volunteers like Ed Mitchell to succeed. Congratulations to Ed Mitchell for participating in this important process.
