SEIU Locals from across Pennsylvania (including SEIU Healthcare PA, SEIU Local 668 and SEIU 32BJ) have endorsed Amanda Green-Hawkins and Daniel McCaffery for Superior Court Judge.
Amanda Green-Hawkins, Superior Court Judge
Amanda grew up in a union household and worked three jobs to put herself through law school. She has a long history of winning legal cases on behalf of working people. While clerking in California, Amanda crafted a legal argument that saved the jobs of factory workers and won them fair treatment. After clerking, she became an attorney for the United Steel Workers Union where she continued to fight for working families.
As an attorney, she fought a company that refused to pay nine hundred workers a pension. Amanda also has a history of public service; she was elected to the Alleghany County Council twice and understands the importance of an independent judiciary system. Amanda is running for Superior Court to uphold the system of checks and balances here in the Keystone State. She has exceptional experience and ethics that will benefit the court as well as workers here in Pennsylvania.
