To the Editor, Saratoga Today

As a long-time litigator and legal services administrator, I’m pleased to support the election of Hon. Carl G. Falotico as Justice of the Supreme Court for our state’s Fourth Judicial District, which includes Saratoga County.

It’s in this court that the most serious and complicated cases are decided. Judge Falotico’s broad legal background – in the Schenectady County District Attorney’s Office, as the city’s Corporation Counsel and as a City Court Judge – makes him ideally suited to now serve in the Supreme Court.

I recently heard Judge Falotico speak about his City Court experience, and particularly about his work with Schenectady City Alternative Treatment Court. Clearly he has been willing to hold defendants appearing before him accountable. On the other hand, he has also permitted defendants whose offenses resulted from mental illness instead to receive support and services that benefit them and also the community.

Over the years I’ve been fortunate to work with distinguished Supreme Court judges in our part of New York. I have every confidence that Carl Falotico will be numbered among them.
