Judge Drew Crompton

Born and raised in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, Judge J. Andrew “Drew” Crompton graduated from Phil-Mont Christian Academy High School, Dickinson College and Widener School of Law in Harrisburg.

In his role as General Counsel to the Senate Republicans, Judge Crompton served as a vital link among all branches of government, providing leadership and counsel in the passage of vital legislation affecting Pennsylvanians in every walk of life.

He was the point lawyer for dozens of high-profile cases including redistricting, negotiating a settlement with the NCAA, budget disputes and separation of power cases (often to rein in the power of the Governor or other executives). Judge Crompton also participated in the seminal U.S. Supreme Court case, DC v. Heller, to protect the 2nd Amendment. Prior to leaving the Senate, Judge Crompton intervened on behalf of many Republican Senators to oppose the use of taxpayer dollars for abortion.

Judge Crompton’s current appointed term to the Commonwealth Court runs from January 2020 to January 2022. He was confirmed by a 42-7 vote of the Senate, which included the support of every Republican member. Hailed as straightforward, thoughtful and objective, Judge Crompton’s decisions have served as important examples.

Stacy Wallace

A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, Stacy was motivated to become an attorney to provide those in need with the quality and professional legal representation we all deserve. Stacy graduated from Duquesne University Law School in 2004 and gained immediate experience within the judicial system. She conducted legal research and drafted both trial and appellate court judicial memoranda and opinions. These experiences would inspire her to one day run for judge.

 

Stacy’s diverse and comprehensive legal career, which began while she was still in law school and spans nearly 20 years of legal experience, makes her the ideal candidate for the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court. As an attorney, Stacy has represented an extensive range of clients in both the private and public sectors, worked on behalf of local and regional nonprofits, such as Northwestern Legal Services, and argued cases involving county and state government entities. She has served as a specially appointed law master and Sex Offender Registration & Notification Act (SORNA) counsel, been certified as a conflict resolution mediator, and shared her knowledge of the law as an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh-Bradford and as an instructor in continuing education courses for fellow attorneys. As an entrepreneur who founded her own law practice in 2012 and the current President of the McKean County Bar Association, Stacy has advocated for rank-and-file Pennsylvanians and served as their guide to our Commonwealth’s legal system. Stacy believes the best judges have real-world experience to understand how their decisions will impact those in their jurisdiction. If elected, Stacy will be a judge for all Pennsylvanians, drawing on her perspective and past experience to craft decisions that are legally and constitutionally grounded.

Supreme Court Judge

Judge Kevin Brobson

Born and raised in Lycoming County, Kevin is the son of a retired Pennsylvania State Trooper and Air Force veteran and grandson of former Philadelphia Police Officer. His mother worked at the Little League Baseball’s National headquarters in Williamsport. Growing up, his parents taught him that there is no substitute for hard work.

Kevin went to college and law school in Central Pennsylvania and then clerked for a federal judge in Philadelphia before becoming an associate with Pittsburgh-headquartered Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney. There he stayed in private practice for 14 years, working in commercial litigation and administrative law, eventually becoming a shareholder and practice group chair in the firm.

Since 2010, Kevin has served as a judge on the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, a statewide intermediate appellate court one step below the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The Commonwealth Court is entrusted with the important responsibility of ensuring that government, at all levels, follows the law. He has not shied away from the controversial cases during his tenure. He has ruled in favor of gun rights, school choice, and, perhaps most notably, the justiciability of constitutional challenges to congressional districts drawn by the state legislature. His colleagues expressed their confidence in his collegiality, professionalism, and leadership when, in December 2020, they elected Kevin to serve as the 10th President Judge of the Commonwealth Court.
