Potter County Democrats recently welcomed Jill Beck, candidate for Pennsylvania Superior Court, at a gathering at the Potter County Democratic Headquarters in Coudersport.

Most recently at the firm, Blank Rome, she worked to help underserved communities, representing victims of domestic violence, helping those experiencing housing insecurity and working to ensure equal and equitable treatment for everyone under the law. She spent 10 years working for the Honorable Christine Donohue in her Superior and Supreme Court Chambers where Beck drafted hundreds of the very decisions she will decide if elected. Beck is recommended by the Pennsylvania Bar Association. She is pictured here with members of the Potter County Democratic Committee.
