Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?
What in your personal, civic or professional experience recommends your election or return to office?
Since becoming Hillburn/'/s Justice in 2009, I have pursued and obtained grant money from New York State to improve Hillburn/'/s court facility, including construction of a court room judicial bench and a Court Clerk station.
My extensive experience in law enforcement combined with my experience as an attorney provides me with a unique perspective and understanding of the criminal justice and court system.
In order to maximize the integrity of the judicial office, I declined to accept any financial contributions during this judicial campaign.
What would be your top three priorities if you are elected or re-elected?
1) I will continue to pursue grant funds to improve the court/'/s facilities and services, such as the recent implementation of an online payment option in the Hillburn Justice Court.
2) I will continue to ensure that the Hillburn Justice Court is conducted with fairness, professionalism and that the ends of justice are served.
3) To continue to incorporate the latest technology in carrying out the courts purposes.
