Doylestown, PA—April 9, 2019. Jordan Yeager, candidate for Bucks County Court of Common Pleas Judge, took the lead today in signing the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s “Judicial
Candidate’s Pledge,” vowing to conduct his campaign according to “standards consistent with the integrity, impartiality, and independence of the judicial office to which I aspire.” This pledge is
typically signed only by candidates for statewide appellate court. Yeager is the first of the candidates for judge on the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas to sign the pledge. Yeager also committed to honor the PBA’s Judicial Campaign Advertising Guidelines, which states, “Recognizing that the primary concern of the electorate in the selection of … judicial officers should be with the overall ability of a candidate to perform the judicial function in a competent, effective, independent, impartial, and honorable manner, candidates and their staffs should refrain from engaging in campaign advertising not directed to those concerns.”

On signing the pledge, Yeager commented, “I am taking this action because we should expect the highest ethical conduct of all of our judges and judicial candidates. I wholeheartedly agree to
conduct my judicial election campaign consistent with the most stringent standards of ethics, integrity, impartiality, and independence that should be expected of all candidates for every level of
our Commonwealth’s courts.”
