Letter: DA Candidate Cantorna Is Compassionate, Courageous and Fair

on May 03, 2017 2:52 PM

This letter is written to support Bernie Cantorna for District Attorney. Bernie graduated in the top 10 percent of his class from the University of Wisconsin's first-tier law school and has shown a strong commitment to fundamental ideals of justice, fair adjudication, and professional integrity throughout his career. As someone who has faced him in court, I can attest that he brings intelligence and enthusiasm to his cases and is a worthy opponent.

Perhaps of greatest interest to the readers in this particular forum, Bernie is an instructor at The Trial Lawyer's College. The Trial Lawyer's College teaches an empathy-based approach to trial advocacy, focusing on a deep understanding of the stories and experiences of the various people involved in a case. Its mission statement relates that "The Trial Lawyer's College is dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals:the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression."

He is also an active member or our community, helping Penn State’s women’s rugby program, including his daughter, achieve six consecutive national championships.

Bernie is compassionate, courageous, honest, fair and even-tempered. He will not compromise his values for pecuniary or political gain.  There has also never been a hint of scandal or controversy surrounding his activities here in Centre County. He would be a District Attorney we will all be proud of, and I hope he will be elected.
