A dedicated public servant with a foundation in social work, Alyssa has been fighting for Allegheny County families for over 20 years.
Far from a politician, she’s seeking a spot on the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas to further serve her community. She isn’t interested in stump speeches or fundraisers — just providing impartial and fair justice to those in Western Pennsylvania.
Money doesn’t belong in politics — and especially so in any judicial race — so Alyssa has committed to running a grassroots campaign that puts people before politics.
Join us in this fight and vote for Alyssa Cowan, Democrat for Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, on Tuesday, May 18th!
Alyssa’s campaign has been built on the support of a diverse and inclusive coalition of Allegheny County voters — hear from just a few of those individuals on why they’ll be voting for Alyssa Cowan in the Democratic primary on May 18th.
With 20 years of experience protecting Pittsburgh families, plus an extensive legal and educational background, Alyssa is fully prepared to be a caring, honest, attentive, and unbiased Judge on the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas.
Alyssa has made a commitment in this campaign to not seek any high-priced political endorsements or accept any large donations. She’ll take her seat on the bench beholden only to providing impartial justice to the people of Allegheny County.
We can no longer ignore the structural disadvantages in our court system. Alyssa recognizes that seeking equality isn’t enough, and that only through a more equitable community can we have a legal system that’s truly fair and impartial to all.
Dignity and respect should be provided to all. Alyssa’s promise, should you elect her to the bench, is a simple one: treat any member of your family, should they appear in her court, with the care and attention she’d want for her own.
