"I have been a criminal defense trial attorney for 12
years," Greene says. "I love the law and have often thought about and
expressed my desire to run for the District Attorney of Warren County. I remember a time in Warren County when
we did not lock our doors and felt safe; now we are witnessing drug
problems growing out of control, burglaries rising, and sexual predators
increasingly on the prowl. This trend is not acceptable. It's time for
"In my 12 years of practice I have seen areas worthy of
improvement, programs needing support, and unnecessary injustices done to crime
victims, law enforcement, witnesses, and criminal defendants. It is the
District Attorney's duty to thoroughly investigate and evaluate each potential
prosecution early in the criminal process, to ensure the protection of
liberties, and prosecute, to the fullest extent of the law, those who are
making our community unsafe."
Greene is a member of the Warren County Bar Association, the
Pennsylvania Bar Association, and U.S. District Court of Western Pennsylvania.
He has been on the Board of Family
Services of Warren County, a Criminal Law Instructor for Jamestown Community

Greene closed by stating, "I believe Warren County is
the greatest place on Earth to live and raise a family. If elected I will serve
as a District Attorney who is dedicated to justice, committed to change and leads by example."
