Krom Endorsed By District Attorneys Statewide

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

District attorneys across Pennsylvania endorsed Fulton/ Franklin County Court of Common Pleas judicial candidate Angela Rosenberry Krom last week.

"Angela's tested courtroom experience, her first-hand knowledge of how the judicial system works and her compassion for others make her an ideal candidate for this judgeship," said Jack Nelson, district attorney for Franklin County since 1986.

"Also, she has a wonderful sense of community pride, strong values and an unwavering commitment to fairness and the rule of law. When she needs to be, she is tough as nails and criminals who she has put behind bars know that."

The 21 district attorneys who have endorsed Krom's candidacy are from Adams, Berks, Centre, Crawford, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Juniata, Franklin, Lachawanna, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Lycoming, Union, Montgomery, Potter, Washington, Wyoming and York counties.

"Receiving the endorsement of fellow district attorneys from across the state is gratifying in that, as a district attorney, you know what it means to have a judge who is knowledgeable, tested, fair, strong, compassionate and efficient," said Krom. "I have immense respect for judges who follow the law, hear all sides fairly and do not legislate from the bench."

Krom is assistant district attorney in the Franklin County District Attorney's Office, where she has successfully prosecuted cases ranging from misdemeanors to homicides. During her more than a dozen years in the district attorney's office, she has argued cases on behalf of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to the state's Superior and Supreme courts. She also has appeared before the Court of Common Pleas in thousands of proceedings, including evidentiary hearings, non-jury trials, pleas, sentencings, juvenile matters and appellate proceedings.
