The primary’s over and the results are in. Judge Serratelli received more than 16,000 votes from Dauphin County’s Democrats and Republicans. Judge Serratelli will appear in first place as top vote getter on the Democratic ballot in the Fall. This is a tremendous first step, and we couldn’t have done it without you.
Our next step is to gather up all of our yard signs. If you have them and you’d like to keep them, please take them inside and let us know how many you’ve got (firstname.lastname@example.org), or you can drop them off at 2080 Linglestown Road in Harrisburg. We’ll be gathering up the signs placed on public property all week. If you’d like to help, us we’d greatly appreciate it.
Tuesday, May 16th, is primary election day. It’s an important day to exercise your rights as a Dauphin County resident, and one of the best times to do so: local elections are never well attended, so, in a sense, your vote counts more now than it would in another election. In many precincts, the turnout is under two hundred, so you really do have the power to sway an election. Never let anyone say your vote doesn’t matter.
The Judge looks on as EJS chairman Pete Wambach reminds the gathering of Judge Serratelli’s unanimous confirmation. When was the last time you remember Democrats and Republicans agreeing so completely on an issue?
Judge Serratelli presided over the naturalization of 37 new American citizens yesterday. In her words: “As the granddaughter of German and Italian immigrants, Naturalization Court is a very meaningful and moving experience, reminding me of the gift my grandparents gave to me and to my children-the gift of U.S. citizenship in our great country. And with that gift comes the very important right and obligation to vote.”
Have you seen our new sign in Linglestown Circle? Our team has been working hard to put together the materials we need to get Judge Serratelli’s name out to the voters, but we could use your help. In honor of our victory in 2017, we’re asking for donations of $20.17 to the Committee to Elect Judge Serratelli. Your support allows us to keep moving ahead with Judge Serratelli’s pledge to Protect Seniors, Families, and Children. Thank you all, we couldn’t do it without you, and remember to vote May 16th!
Judge Serratelli and a group of her supporters were given the opportunity to join Harrisburg’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year. Despite some early rain, we were greeted by a great many of our friends and neighbors resulting in a fun event for all present.

HARRISBURG – Today, Judge Lori Serratelli filed nominating petitions with 2,374 signatures for Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas. These signatures represent a tremendous outpouring of support – more than ten times the required amount – from every corner of the county, from Republicans and Democrats alike, from voters who share Judge Lori Serratelli’s independent vision of justice in Dauphin County.
“I am grateful to the scores of people across Dauphin County who supported our campaign by signing one of our petitions,” said Judge Serratelli. “Running as a sitting judge is never easy, and without the hard work and determination of hundreds of volunteers who knocked on countless doors and the voters who took time out of their busy schedules to sign our petition, I would not have been able to put up such a tremendous number signatures. To everyone who assisted our effort and to everyone in Dauphin County, know that I will not let you down. I will continue to be an independent voice on the bench and always put first the communities that make Dauphin County great.”
Judge Lori Serratelli has practiced law in Central Pennsylvania since 1978 focusing her practice on family law and civil litigation where she earned a reputation as a passionate advocate for the law. She continued to practice until being appointed to the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas by the Governor and unanimously confirmed by the state Senate. Judge Serratelli is running for her first full term as an independent sitting judge. Her name will appear on both the Republican and Democratic ballots.
Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who have been circulating petitions and continue to do so for the next week. We had a record turnout at St. Thomas Roasters on Sunday, Feb. 26 at our Petition Signing and Collection Party.
