There are good reasons why those of us in the Centre County legal field pretty much unanimously back Jeremy Breon for Centre County prothonotary. First of all, we must assure that a qualified person continues to run the Centre Prothonotary’s Office, because an improperly managed prothonotary’s office would paralyze the entire county court system.

With eight years of experience in the same office he seeks to lead, Jeremy has gained enough knowledge and experience to step right into the job. He has demonstrated a high degree of competence while also exhibiting patience with members of the general public who are intimidated and overwhelmed by the court system. By contrast, his opponent is a recent law school graduate who has never worked in a prothonotary’s office before, and would have to undergo extensive training if elected. 

This is one of those situations where direct experience is more valuable than education, especially considering the fact that you do not learn how to run a prothonotary’s office in law school. I have been a lawyer since 1997 and would not know how to run a prothonotary’s office unless I underwent training. The only way to learn this type of job is through years of working in the office.

If you vote for Jeremy, you will be doing a favor for everyone who works in the court system, and if you ever need to use the courthouse yourself, you will not regret your decision.
