There is a great buy on “revolving doors.” The “revolving door policy” has been in effect for decades. Maine, New Jersey and New Hampshire (let’s not forget Washington DC) have a great investment in them. It’s a great “product” to keep your agenda in place. It’s also a terrific “security tool” for “gatekeepers” of elected officials who will eventually climb the ladder to a higher position. Gatekeeper: one who answers the telephone for elected officials and denies you access to your “representative.”
Below is New Hampshire’s latest investment.
One Maine example, (former) York County District Attorney Michael Cantara, with more to be added.
Michael Cantara is a bar certified attorney and was District Attorney of York County. Official corruption was brought to him back in the 1990’s. However, my complaint against Atty. Michelle Robert (who was appointed to the A.G.’s office by Governor Angus King, despite his pledge of a “hiring freeze”) was dismissed by Cantara because Michelle Robert was “his friend and colleague.”
Attorney Mark Lawrence (former President of the Maine Senate) was appointed District Attorney by Governor John Baldacci to fill the vacancy created when Cantara became Commissioner of Public Safety.
Michael Cantara, of Biddeford, served as Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety for nearly four years, then Governor John Baldacci nominated him to the bench.
More investments to follow:
Stuart Rabner, N.J., former A.G., currently sits on the N.J. Supreme Court (during the tenure of Jon Corzine)
Janice Rundles, N.H., District Attorney in Strafford County, left office during the Billy Miller debacle and got a job in the N.H. Attorney General’s Office, Homicide Division.
H. Marshall Jarett, Counsel, Office of Professional Responsibility, (shielded the cover up of criminal activity by U.S. Attorneys General of New Jersey and New Hampshire) and reassigned to head the Executive Office for United States Attorneys by Attorney General Eric Holder Jr.

Governor Lynch to Nominate Longtime Prosecutor to Serve on the Superior Court
CONCORD – Governor John Lynch today announced he will nominate Senior Assistant Attorney General N. William Delker, a longtime criminal prosecutor for the State of New Hampshire, to the Superior Court at tomorrow’s Governor and Council meeting. The Executive Council must confirm the nomination.
Delker, of Concord, is the supervising prosecutor in the Cold Case Unit in the Attorney General’s Office. He previously served as chief of the Criminal Justice Bureau, and he has been a prosecutor with the department since 1998. Delker led the state team prosecuting Michael Addison for the capital murder of Manchester police officer Michael Briggs.
“Will Delker has distinguished himself as a prosecutor, having been recognized throughout his career for his excellence and professionalism. He has a thorough understanding of the law and has shown a deep commitment to justice and fairness, which are qualities required of any judge in the New Hampshire Superior Court system,” Gov. Lynch said. “Will Delker’s sharp intellect and command of the law is why he has been chosen to handle some of the state’s most difficult and complex cases. He will make a great addition to the courts.”
Delker has also been an adjunct professor of law at Franklin Pierce Law Center and the Massachusetts School of Law. Prior to joining the Attorney General’s Office, Delker was an attorney with the Boston firm of Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault.
He graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1991 with bachelors of arts degrees in political science and economics. Delker received his law degree from The American University’s Washington College of Law in 1995.
