Becker has served well as judge

One of the most important positions in county government is our county judge. Judge Becker has served us in that position for almost 10 years. He has done a superior job in all aspects of this position. 

As a retired law enforcement officer, I have observed many of his decisions in criminal court and I feel he always does what is right for all parties concerned. It is not only knowledge of the law a judge must possess; also, judicial temperament is an important factor for a judge. 

The ability to make decisions that ensure the law is applied and justice is served is a quality Judge Becker possesses. His innovations such as the drug court have helped so many people become productive members of society again. From personal knowledge, his ability to make the most difficult decisions in family court has contributed to the well-being of children and families in our county. He is an acting justice of the Sixth Judicial Supreme Court of New York, a highly regarded position that is well respected in the legal community. 

He is an avid sportsman and believes in our Second Amendment rights. Judge Becker is an honorable man we can trust, in and out of the courtroom, to do what is right for the people of Delaware County. He deserves our vote this November.
