Doylestown, PA—May 6, 2019. The Southeast Pennsylvania National Organization for Women PAC has joined the growing list of organizations and elected officials who have endorsed Jordan Yeager for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Bucks County.
“Fighting for equal rights has been the impetus for my legal career, and I am honored that NOW has recognized my commitment to justice for all. I have spent over 26 years fighting to protect our constitutional rights and guaranteed freedoms. As a judge, I will treat all who come before the Court with fairness and respect,” said Yeager.
Yeager has devoted a substantial part of his career to representing women in employment discrimination and sexual harassment litigation. Yeager’s 2013 landmark victory in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the first case in history declaring a state law unconstitutional because it violated the environmental rights of Pennsylvanians, as well as his continued groundbreaking environmental advocacy, have earned him the endorsements of the Sierra Club, Conservation Voters of PA, Food & Water Action, and Clean Water Action.
The Bucks County Democratic Committee overwhelmingly endorsed Yeager, with over 91% of delegates’ votes on the first ballot. He has also been endorsed by former Congressman Patrick Murphy, State Senators Steve Santarsiero and Maria Colett, and State Representatives Tina Davis, Wendy Ullman, John Galloway, and Perry Warren. Bucks County Commissioner Diane Marseglia, Recorder of Deeds Robin Robinson, Prothonotary Judy Reiss, Controller Neale Dougherty, and Sheriff Milt Warrell have also endorsed Yeager.
Yeager is seeking both the Democratic and Republican nominations to the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas in the May 21, 2019 primary election. If nominated, he will take part in the general election on November 5.
