Deputy DA challenges Robinson
HONESDALE, PA — Kathy Martin, currently serving as the Senior Deputy District Attorney in the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office, is challenging Patrick Robinson. Robinson was appointed to the post a year ago after the previous District Attorney, Janine Edwards, won an election to become President Judge.
Martin announced on February 6 that she has secured agreement of three township supervisors in Wayne County to act as co-chairs for her campaign: Supervisor Jim Swingle of Salem Township, Supervisor Tim Jaggars of Lake Township and Supervisor Bruce Chandler of Paupack Township.
Martin is a 1992 graduate of Temple University School of Law. For the entirety of her twenty-six year-long career, she has practiced criminal law in the state and federal courts in Pennsylvania, has tried approximately 100 jury trials to verdict and has handled thousands of criminal cases.
Previously, she served in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office as chief of staff, general counsel and chief integrity officer.
Along with Martin and Robinson, Honesdale attorney Alfred G. Howell has also announced that he will run for the District Attorney’s office.
