PMC provides citizens with important information that they can use to become more informed about the justice system in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts advocates for the integrity of our judicial system and increases public awareness of this important issue. They do it in a way that helps the public understand the complexity of such a critical issue -- as well as the results of a non-merit based selection system. I echo the sentiments of prior-commenter Dave -- the Luzerne County court scandal sheds light on the need for system for reform. PMC is leading the charge.
It is important for the public to be properly educated on this subject. Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts provides a balanced, well thought out position for those of us who need to be kept informed on this matter.
PMC is educating the public on the ramifications of an elected judiciary and is effectively promoting a solution where the public has a voice but the objectivity of judges is not called into question. Between their insightful posts on their blog, their position papers and their involvement in the community, the leadership of PMC is educating all of us on what are the consequences of electing judges and what are the possibilities for a fair and impartial judiciary.
I had worked for PMC for years and have always respected the organization for its hard work, determination, and social justice focus. PMC is so passionate about the judicial causes it champions, which is amazing. I know the staff and organization work so hard to make the judicial system better, and they do make it better. I am proud to have worked for PMC and to still know the organization and its staff. They do so much for Pennsylvania and stay so well informed, educated, and positive in bettering the judicial process/system.
