Kathryn At Lee Marsh for State’s Attorney
There are good reasons the current State’s Attorney thinks Marsh is her natural successor although both candidates for State’s Attorney in the upcoming Republican Primary (June 26th) work in the State’s Attorney’s office, only one has been named the “natural successor” by the current Republican State’s Attorney. Laura Martin, retiring State’s Attorney (our equivalent of a “District Attorney”), said of Kathryn At Lee Marsh.
“Deputy State’s Attorney, Kathryn Marsh, would be a natural successor to the position [of States Attorney]. Over the years she has worked in nearly division of the office, understands the budgetary process and is an excellent trial attorney. She would serve the citizens of Calvert County well.” It’s understandable that Ms. Martin thinks this way. Only Ms. Marsh has years of experience as the Deputy State’s Attorney, has served as the State’s Attorney in Ms. Martin’s absence, has decades of experience making the serious prosecutorial decisions required of that office, has extensive management experience of that office, and has served as a liaison for our State’s Attorney’s office with state government to achieve needed legislative changes.
As well as serving in the State’s Attorney’s office since 1998, Ms. Marsh has been an acknowledged, and awarded, community leader in Calvert County for as many years, with substantial accomplishments to the betterment of our County and its citizens, particularly its youth. She was the driving force in the creation this year of a Child Advocacy Center for our County. State’s Attorney Martin knows what it takes to bring justice to our citizens, that’s why she knows Deputy State’s Attorney Marsh will serve our County well as State’s Attorney.
