Meet the Candidates

PA Supreme Court Justice Sallie Mundy

Sallie Mundy is currently an Associate Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and is currently up for reelection on the Republican Ticket in 2017.

Justice Mundy was born and raised in Tioga county, Pennsylvania. Justice Mundy later moved to Western Pennsylvania to receive her undergraduate education from Washington and Jefferson College, before receiving her law degree from The University of Pittsburgh School of Law. 

After law school Justice Mundy began to practice law at a private practice in Centre County, traveling throughout Northern and Central Pennsylvania. She would later move to practice law throughout the Philadelphia region, working with tireless diligence. Over the course of this 20 years as a private attorney she earned a reputation for being one of the sharpest, hardest-working, lawyers in the entire state of Pennsylvania. This reputation carried her a successful election bid for Pennsylvania Superior Court in 2009.

Her reputation only continued to grow while serving on the Superior Court. As a Judge of that court she became known as an honest, ethical, and hardworking judge, gaining her statewide recognition from both parties. This all culminated in 2016 with her appointment to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. 

Justice Mundy became such a revered Judge that her next position became a rare act of bipartisan agreement. In response to the sudden vacancy on the Supreme Court in July of 2016 she was nominated by Governor Tom Wolf, a Democrat, and her confirmation passed the State Senate without a single nay vote.

Justice Sallie Mundy has demonstrated time and again that it is her mission to uphold the constitution. Make sure to vote for Justice Sallie Mundy in the Primary on May 16th, and then in the General Election on November 7th so that she may continue to do so.

Words of Wisdom

"Any man of energy and initiative in this country can get what he wants out of life.  But when initiative is crippled by legislation or by a tax system which denies him the right to receive a reasonable share of his earnings, then he will no longer exert himself and the country will be deprived of the energy of which its continued greatness depends." 
 -Andrew Mellon

Do You Have President Trump's Back

Since Election Day, the radical left and their allies in the media have been working overtime to viciously attack and undermine President Trump.
 
To put it bluntly: They want to kill our agenda to Make America Great Again!

Our party, President Trump and GOP elected officials will continue to be targeted by paid protestors and radical leftists until we fight back.

We need your help right NOW to fight back. With your help, we will recruit and train a grassroots army of new volunteers committed to defeating the radical left and Making America Great Again.

Will you show that you have President Trump's back by contributing $100, $50, $25 or even $5 today by going to this Link.

Thank you for all that you do to keep our party strong,


Grassroots Tip
 
Writing Letters to the Editor
Grassroots workers can help our GOP candidates by writing letters to the editor of local newspapers.  Here are some helpful hints to increase your chances of getting published:
  1. Keep it short, there is a 250-word limit in the Post-Gazette and a 200-word in the Tribune-Review.
  2. Don't be overly partisan or read like a candidate's press release.
  3. Cover just one or two points.  Don't make it too complicated.  Make it easy to read.
  4. Humor is good, but don't be overly sarcastic or sharp. 
  5.  Write a response to a previous article, editorial, letter, or opinion piece in the same publication.  Editors just love this! 
  6.  Back up your argument with reasons rather than just expressing your feelings.  Instead of "Rendell is a sleazy liar," say "Gov Rendell signed last year's illegal pay raise instead of vetoing it and therefore is just as accountable as the state legislators." 
  7. Send your letter via email rather than by snail mail to letters@post-gazette.com and opinion@tribweb.com.
  8. Be sure to include your name, address, phone number, and municipality.
  9. Be sure to reply to the confirmation call.  They will not print your letter until your give them permission by phone.
  10. Send letters to local community weekly publications.  There is a greater chance of being published and lots of people read them too.
