I recently attended a presentation that put the two candidates for State’s Attorney in the same room at the same time and let them both answer the same questions. This opportunity came at Asbury-Solomons. Observing and hearing both candidates respond to questions put to them from the audience made it crystal clear that only one has ‘the right stuff’ to serve as our next State’s Attorney. It reinforced what I had learned about them from reading their bios.
Kathryn At Lee Marsh is the current Calvert County Deputy State’s Attorney, the highest non-elective position in the State’s Attorney’s Office. She acts as the State’s Attorney when that Officer is not available. She has almost twenty years’ experience in the State’s Attorney’s Office. Her responses to questions showed that she is knowledgeable and totally familiar with what the position entails. Ms. Marsh is clearly a seasoned lawyer with mature judgement and extensive experience in all the aspects of running a State’s Attorney’s Office. She has a deep knowledge of Calvert County.
At a time when we are dealing with a serious opioid crisis, human trafficking, on-line crimes, sexual assault, child and elder abuse, and all other sectors of our society, Kathryn Marsh proved she is more than ready for the job. In addition to working very hard as the Deputy State’s Attorney, she dedicates a great deal of her time volunteering in various capacities to make our County a better place to live.
This is such an important elected position for our County, it would be beneficial if there were other public forums available to see and hear the difference in these two candidates. Putting these two candidates side by side it easily becomes clear which candidate is more qualified and who is ready to move into the position of State’s Attorney for Calvert County.
