Marshall the most qualified candidate

In any election, opposing sides can get so caught up in talking about the other candidate’s supposed weaknesses that they forget to share positive information about their own candidate. It can get negative, and that benefits no one — especially the residents of Centre County.

So I’m going to focus on the positive, and why Brian Marshall is the most qualified candidate to serve as Centre County judge. He is the only candidate who has pursued extensive additional training relevant to serving as judge. Brian is trained in collaborative law and third-party mediation, and is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst and former Certified Public Accountant. Those trainings and certifications position him to save taxpayer resources while rendering fair and equitable decisions with patience and compassion.

A partner in Miller, Kistler & Campbell, Brian is the current president of the Centre County Bar Association. He is widely respected in his profession, as evidenced by his 10 out of 10 rating on Avvo.com, a leading online lawyer ratings system. Being a judge requires not only the appropriate skills and experience. It also requires an appropriate temperament. Brian’s clients and fellow attorneys alike have praised his honesty, patience and commitment to his clients. In short, he’s a good person who would make an excellent judge.

When you go to the polls on Nov. 7, choose the candidate who will treat all those who enter his courtroom with dignity and respect. Vote for Brian Marshall for Centre County judge.
