I am calling on all Republicans to ignore the party line in regard to the Westmoreland County District Attorney's race.Unseating District Attorney John Peck would leave a gaping hole in our legal system. I'm asking Republicans to do their homework before voting.

Peter Borghetti, the Republican DA candidate, has no experience in the criminal courts, neither prosecuting nor defending. This is the chief law enforcement position in the county. This is not a “learn as you go” or on-the-job-training position.

State and local police and our assistant district attorneys look to Peck as a fountain of knowledge and information in trying their cases. Moreover, he successfully prosecutes the majority of homicides in Westmoreland County.

John has more than 30 years of experience as a prosecutor. Please check both candidates' records before voting straight Republican. It could mean the difference in the prosecution of the next criminal in your neighborhood.
