Election day is approaching fast. Palm Beach County criminal defense and criminal appeals attorneys may want to pay close attention to 1 race in particular: the race for Palm Beach County State Attorney. The Palm Beach Post recently published a short article outlining the three candidates, Dave Aronberg (D), Robert Gershman (non-party affiliate), and Dina Keever (R), here.
Recently, I went to a local bar function to hear the 3 candidates speak. Dina Keever actually pulled a no-show. Not very impressive. Dave Aronberg was a good speaker, as always. But I was most surprised by Robert Gershman. He had a lot of good things to say about returning prosecutorial discretion back to the line prosecutors, and he has many years of experience as both a serious criminal defense lawyer and prosecutor here in Palm Beach County.
