Mike George for Supreme Court

Mike George grew up right outside of Pittsburgh in McKeesport with his parents, and eight brothers and sisters. Although his family was not wealthy, Mike did not let finances dictate his future. He paid his way through school by bagging groceries, washing dishes and working in the steel mills. He also spent summers working at Kennywood Park, where he served as a police officer.

Mike graduated from Washington and Jefferson and went on to attend Dickinson School of Law in Central Pennsylvania. After moving to Adams County, Mike started a private practice and met his wife, Karen. Mike would later go on to be elected as the county's first full-time District Attorney, and then as a Judge on the Adams County Court of Common Pleas. He currently serves as the President Judge of the court. Mike has worked within the judicial system to reform the courts and make sure that the Judiciary is accountable to taxpayers. He has heard thousands of cases, including a capital case where the defendant shot and killed a member of law enforcement. Judge George ultimately sentenced the defendant to death.

In his race for Supreme Court, Mike has earned the endorsement of organizations such as:
• Pennsylvania State Troopers Association
• Fraternal Order of Police, Pennsylvania State Lodge
• Firearm Owners Against Crime (FOAC)
