Why are you running for town justice?
I have had the desire to become a Town Justice for more than 20 years with the goal to serve the Town of Henrietta and its residents along with the judicial system of the State of New York. Since being appointed to judge, I have had the opportunity to use my expertise in law and law enforcement when dealing with those who appear in front of me. I take pride in treating each case on an individual basis, being firm but fair, showing respect and compassion to the needs of others.
