Dear Pennsylvania Residents,


I am asking for your support for one of the two open seats this year on the Pennsylvania Superior Court. In 2011, I was elected by the citizens of Cumberland County to serve as a Court of Common Pleas Judge. My term expires in 2022. It has been my honor to work on behalf of Cumberland County to handle all legal issues that affect the daily lives of its citizens. Every day I am on the bench hearing criminal cases (including motions, non-jury and jury trials, sentencings, and alternative treatment programs), custody disputes, civil suits, protection from abuse petitions, dependency petitions, appellate work, and Orphan’s court matters such as guardianships and wonderful adoptions. I work with the District Attorney’s office, Public Defender’s office, Sheriffs, Children and Youth, Domestic Relations, the Prison and all other county agencies to improve our practices and procedures.


I am a member of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Commission on Judicial Independence, which works to better educate the public about the role and importance of an independent judiciary. I am a current member of the Board for Pennsylvania Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children and a former member on the Board for the Dickinson School of Law and on the Advisory Board of Pinnacle Health Children’s Resource Center in Harrisburg. I have served as co-chair of the Legal Representation Workgroup of the Pennsylvania Statewide Children’s Roundtable. I also enjoy teaching advocacy as an adjunct professor at the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law.


Prior to serving on the bench, I was a Senior Assistant District Attorney for Cumberland County, prosecuting violent criminal offenders who committed homicides, rapes, robberies, and crimes against children. I previously worked in the child abuse unit for the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office and as an associate at a former Harrisburg law firm. I earned my undergraduate degree from Penn State University and a J.D. from the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law.


I have lived in Pennsylvania all of my life and am dedicated to serving its citizens. I work every day in court, applying the law as it is written, to protect children and strengthen families. I hope to bring my judicial experience and temperament to the Superior Court. I understand the importance of this responsibility and will serve every day with a fair, open mind to all.


I ask for your support and vote on November 5, 2019.


Judge Christylee Peck, Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas.
