Batt endorsed at special meeting of the LCDC Executive Board
Lancaster, PA: This evening, at a special meeting of the Lancaster County Democratic Committee Executive Board, Michelle Batt was endorsed for the special election to fill the vacant Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas position.
“I am thrilled that voters will have a choice for another elected countywide position when they fill out their general election ballots. For too long the Republicans have been able to slide by unopposed in these races” said Diane Topakian, Chair of the Lancaster County Democratic Committee. “We’re thankful that Michelle has put her hat into the ring, and we look forward to working with her on her campaign.”
“I’m not one to shy away from a challenge,” said Batt. “I have no doubt I would be able to work to efficiently and effectively serve the needs of the public and the courts. I would be honored to be able to continue my history of public service in this way.”
Batt, 35, is a graduate of Penn State Law (2013) where she was awarded the Public Interest Advocate Award and a Public Interest Law Fellowship. As a Public Defender in Monroe County and Lancaster County, Michelle has experienced firsthand how the Clerk of Court is to the vital work our county courts do. She is also a co-founder of the Lancaster Bail Fund.
