Brian Marshall has the right temperament to be judge


State College

Being in the hospitality industry for 14 years, I have met a lot of people from all over, all with different personalities and temperaments. Having gotten to know Brian Marshall over the past nearly year, I haven’t met many other people with the calm and collected temperament that he has.

Brian is a deliberate, thoughtful, and empathetic person who approaches all situations with tact and a balanced demeanor.

The procedures a judge needs to know are different than a lawyer’s in trial. Having extensive experience in jury trials — which, in reality, take up a very small percentage of our judges’ times — does not make you the most qualified candidate.

A judge also needs to be able to keep lawyers — who approach trials with their own varying personalities and temperaments — in check during hearings and trials to ensure fairness.

I am convinced that Brian Marshall is the right person with the right temperament to be the next judge in the Centre County Court of Common Pleas.
