Town justice candidate in Gaines says he would be fair and without prejudice

Posted 21 June 2021 at 8:06 pm


This year the Town of Gaines residents are tasked to elect a Town Justice into office. Two candidates are running for one position.

My views are very traditional. I am a firm believer in everyone’s Constitutional rights. I also believe that everyone is accountable for their actions. Each case that comes before the Justice is unique. A case should be decided on its own merits and be judged fairly and without prejudice.

Every citizen that appears before the court is entitled to be treated fairly and the court has the responsibility to ensure their rights are not violated. Although the Town Justice is elected by the people, it should not be a political position whatsoever. A Justice cannot be influenced by any particular political party.

I believe my service to our country in the US Army, our state as a NYS Correction Officer, and our community as a Paramedic for nearly 40 years combined prove my commitment to you. On Tuesday I ask for your vote to continue my service as your Town Justice.
