Chief Justice of Pennsylvania Ronald D. Castille

"The Supreme Court is neither a 'Democrat Court' nor a 'Republican Court,'"

Castille is Pennsylvania's 55th chief justice. The state Constitution designates the chief justice as the most senior member of the Supreme Court. Castille was first elected to the court in 1993 and was reelected in a retention election in 2003.

"The Supreme Court is neither a 'Democrat Court' nor a 'Republican Court,'" the chief justice has said. "We are not elected to serve the parties whose banner we ran under. We are not elected to serve any particular constituency or any particular geographic region of Pennsylvania. We are simply elected to serve a higher calling: Justice."

Castille was the District Attorney of the City of Philadelphia from 1986 to 1991. He is also a former Marine 1st Lieutenant, rifle platoon commander, Vietnam and has received the Bronze Star Medal w/Combat "V," two Purple Heart Medals, Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, Presidential Unit & Naval Unit Citations; Combat Infantry Badge.

The Vesper Club is Philadelphia’s oldest and most prestigious private dining club, centrally located in the heart of center city. The Vesper Club was established in 1901 as a private club. Today members are still the top corporate executives and city politicians.
