YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The White Plains Police Benevolent Association has endorsed Judge Gary Raniolo for re-election as Yorktown Town Justice.
In addition to this endorsement, Raniolo also has been endorsed by the Yorktown Police Benevolent Association.
“Since our prior endorsement of your candidacy, and your subsequent election in 2011, you have fulfilled your commitment to improve the safety and security of the residents of the Town of Yorktown," said Robert Riley, president of the White Plains PBA. "You have also provided reasonable & open access to the court for individuals and have focused on our youth by working with the education, legal, and criminal justice communities in Yorktown. In doing so, you have raised awareness of the grave dangers that have effected many of our youth. Your efforts have also promoted responsible behavior by the young people of the Town of Yorktown.
“Given the proximity of our two communities, we have a shared desire with our Yorktown neighbors to live and work in a safe and welcoming environment. The combination of your 32 years of legal experience, including those as an Assistant District Attorney for Westchester County, your 23 years in the Yorktown community and your continued demonstrated performance on the Yorktown bench for the last three-plus years, gives our membership the confidence to once again endorse your candidacy for re-election to the position of Town Justice.”
Raniolo thanked the White Plains PBA and commented on the endorsement.
”In addition to White Plains being the closest major city to our community, many of our Yorktown residents are members of the White Plains police force and have a personal interest in the safety and welfare of our town," he said. “I appreciate the support of the White Plains PBA and thank them for their recognition of my efforts on behalf of Yorktown residents.”
A practicing attorney, with offices in Tarrytown and Yorktown, Raniolo is a former Assistant District Attorney in Westchester County. He and his wife, Georgeann, are 23-year residents of Yorktown.
