About Marc Taiani
My name is Marc Taiani and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for visiting my website. For those who don’t know me or who are unaware of the current candidates for Magisterial District Judge I would ask you to take some time to compare your options. After doing so I strongly believe you will support my candidacy for Magisterial Judge and give me your vote on Tuesday, May 16th, 2017.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” (Nelson Mandela) When choosing your next Magisterial District Judge a candidate should first be patient, qualified, educated, experienced, and fair minded. As a father of two small boys and as the only candidate for Magistrate that is a licensed practicing attorney (for over 15 plus years) I have gained indispensable experience in being patient. I have also counseled thousands of clients as a private practitioner, representing clients on matters pertaining to family law, criminal law, and real estate matters.
My educational background includes obtaining a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law as well as receiving a Bachelor of Arts in the fields of History and Political Science from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. As a young man I had the great privilege of working in the United States Senate experiencing democracy in action. Upon graduating from law school I founded my law firm of AAAL – Allegheny Attorneys At Law, P.C. that catered to the general public.
Other than working in the judicial system for over 15 year I have also invested my free time and hard earned money in renovating and rehabilitating abandoned properties in both Edgewood and Wilkinsburg. I’m the only candidate for office that owns and pays property taxes within both communities. So when I see absentee landlords abandon beautiful historic properties or allow them to become eye sores within the community I believe it is time to take action and hold these people accountable!
As a fifteen year resident of Wilkinsburg I have seen our community become a desirable neighborhood for families and professionals. Yet recently our communities have seen a surge in both property crimes and violent crimes and I wonder what more can be done? I believe it’s time we start holding people accountable for their actions instead of simply giving them a slap on their wrist. I believe in requiring community service for all first time and summary offenders. Additionally, if you are charged with a violent criminal offense and pose a risk to our communities, I will protect our families and neighbors by imposing increased bail bonds.
I believe in our communities and I ask you for your support. Our children deserve better! On Tuesday, May 16th, 2017 I ask you to vote for myself for the position of Magisterial District Judge. I thank you for your consideration.
