8x10sign_MariaBattista-Flag_BG-0411_pp_BB3Candidate for Clarion County District Attorney.

Dear Voter,

The May 21, 2019 primary election is just around the corner. As you may know, I am a candidate for Clarion County District Attorney.

The ONLY candidate who is a CLARION COUNTY native, I grew up in Knox and currently live in Salem Township where I raised my two children. I am also the ONLY LIFELONG REPUBLICAN candidate! While working throughout the Commonwealth, I gave up neither my home nor my homegrown values. In addition, I am PRO LIFE and PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT. I will defend the laws of the Commonwealth and the U.S. Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers. My own father was a World War II veteran who instilled in me the importance of working hard, persevering even under the most difficult circumstances, and making meaningful contributions to society. My brother, who was a Colonel in the United States Air Force, and my sister, a teacher for over twenty-five years, have also applied these invaluable lessons throughout their lives.

For more than twenty years I have followed my passion of serving the people in both law and education, resulting in over two decades of professional experience that I will bring to the Office of District Attorney. My extensive legal background includes having worked in the following areas:

• Private practitioner
• Assistant District Attorney
• Hearing Examiner at PA Department of State
• Legal counsel for PA Departments of Health and State
• Collaboration with the Office of Attorney General to protect consumers from fraud and abuse in health care matters

Issues challenging the District Attorney’s office—the opioid epidemic, drug and alcohol addiction, mental health conditions, child abuse, among others—are constant and recurring. As your District Attorney, I will not only be a firm prosecutor of drug dealers, career criminals, and those who commit violent crimes, but I will also work closely with law enforcement as well as behavioral health and social service agencies to protect, educate, and assist those who are in need of help.

I have served as vice-chair and as a state committee member of the Clarion County Republican Committee. In this current political climate, it is important to elect a candidate who is committed to conservative Republican principles. I am a conservative Republican candidate who will make it my mission to serve the public responsibly, resolutely, and honorably.

I want to bring my core values, vast legal experience, and deep-rooted Conservative beliefs to the Clarion County District Attorney’s office. On May 21st, I respectfully ask for your vote.

Please visit my website or my Facebook page @BattistaforDA to learn more about my candidacy for District Attorney and to watch a video I recently released. If you would like to put a sign in your yard or work at a poll on election day, please contact me by phone at 814-797-0278 or by e-mail at I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Very respectfully,

Maria Battista, Esq.
Republican Candidate for Clarion County District Attorney
