Rebecca Salandro of Latrobe has announced her candidacy for magisterial district judge in the Unity Township area.
Salandro worked her way through college, earning a master’s degree in education from Seton Hill University in Greensburg and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh.
She has dedicated more than 14 years of her career in human services helping some of the most vulnerable members of the community. For almost 10 years she has worked as a criminal justice liaison throughout Westmoreland County in the district court offices.
“My duties include encouraging individuals in their recovery while helping them regain their place in the community,” she said. “As a criminal justice liaison, I have experienced first hand the workings of the district justice system.”
She has been a member of Westmoreland County’s Criminal Justice Advisory Board for the past several years.
If elected, Salandro said she will devote herself to the “pursuit of fair justice for all.”
“It is an honor to serve as district judge and this position deserves my complete dedication,” she said.
With the retirement of the current Magisterial District Judge Michael Mahady, Salando believes her “background and work experience would qualify me for this position.”
“I will work hard to fill the void left by a well-respected judge who has filled this position for many years,” she added.
Rebecca Salandro and her husband, Rick, are the parents of two young children, and they have built their home in Unity Township for over a decade.
“I would be honored to serve as your next district judge for Magisterial District 10-02-08,” Salandro said.
