To the Valley News:
As a resident of the North Country and an active member of Essex County, I am excited to voice my advocacy of John M. Silvestri's candidacy for Supreme Court Justice in the Fourth Judicial District. The eleven counties that compose the district are Hamilton, Warren, Fulton, Montgomery, Schenectady, Saratoga, Washington, St. Lawrence, Franklin, Clinton, Essex.
John currently serves as the president of the Warren County Bar Association. Previously in his career, John acted as the Assistant District Attorney of Warren County in addition to Town Attorney for Hague and North Hudson. John's qualifications as a candidate are only enhanced by his dedicated and proficient approach to dispute negotiation, practices that he has developed over 30 years as both a defense attorney and prosecutor. With this experience, John will work tirelessly to settle cases, which in turn will save the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars per a year.
Justices should be fair, impartial, and compassionate. John embodies these traits professionally and as a committed community member; his respectful nature and extensive qualifications make me proud to join those endorsing John's candidacy for Supreme Court Justice this November.
