Alumni Association President Kevin Steele Elected Montgomery County District Attorney
Kevin Steele, the 79th president of the Penn State Alumni Association and a 1992 graduate from the Dickinson School of Law, can add another title to his long list of accolades. Steele was elected Montgomery County District Attorney after earning 28.24 percent of the vote, defeating former D.A. Bruce Castor by just less than five percentage points. Steele led his first meetings as President of the Alumni Association this past Thursday and Friday.
Steele previously served as Montgomery County’s first-ever assistant district attorney, boasting a 23-year career as a prosecutor while teaching criminal justice at Cabrini College since 2004.
The ongoing investigation sexual-assault claims against comedian Bill Cosby became a focal in the race. We wrote about Steele’s smear campaign against Castor, where he claimed “Bruce Castor was not looking out for the victims.” The Bill Cosby accuser said she’d stop cooperating with in the case if Castor won the election, according to the Philadelphia Associated Press. After it was reported that Steele won this election, he assured supporters, “You made a choice to take it forward, to fight for victims, to fight for people who have been the subject of crimes.”
Steele is the first Democrat to hold the District Attorney position in Montgomery County.
