I am running for election as the Saltaire Village Justice.  I am writing to present my qualifications and to seek your support.

About Me

I have lived in Saltaire for over twenty-five years.

I served three years on the board of the S.C.A.A., the last two as its chair.  I organized and hosted the first Candidate Forum. 

After I left the SCAA board, I served two terms as a Village Trustee.  

Since leaving the Village Board, I have served as an auxiliary member of the Saltaire Fire Company.

For years, I organized the Saltaire Halloween Party and was 'Mr. Halloween.'  Most years, I still am.  I have been a judge at the Sandcastle Contest since it began.  I continue to help with the Jogathon and 10K races and other community events.  

I host and maintain the S.C.A.A. Web site.  It is a lot of work but I am happy with the results including the very useful directory of email addresses. 

Legal Background  

I am a graduate of the N.Y.U. School of Law.  After graduation, I practiced criminal law in Brooklyn and Manhattan.  I have tried many cases and am very familiar with New York law and procedure. 


I believe that my experience with Saltaire community organizations, in Saltaire government and as a lawyer make me well qualified to undertake the responsibilities of Village Justice.  I hope that you will agree and support my candidacy for this important office.
