Becker comes from good family background

Delaware County needs Carl F. Becker, incumbent, elected as county judge for a second term.

Judge Becker came to upper Delaware County, Stamford, in 1973, where he joined the law office of attorney Robert McDowell. He became a full partner in the law firm in 1979. Upon the tragic death of Mr. McDowell in June 1990, the law office transitioned to Mr. Becker.

Carl acted as village attorney for Stamford and Hobart. He also served as county attorney for 28 years prior to his judgeship.

During this time, the Beckers have been very involved in their community. He was a Boy Scout Master, member of Rotary International since 1974, serving as local president, youth exchange president and district president. He has served as deacon and elder in the Stamford United Presbyterian Church. He has also been very involved in the formation of CORE Values and Friends of Music.

Judge Becker has been diligent, teaching family law training at Albany Law School for the American Bar Association, subject: “Children and the Law.”

He also specialized in a multitude of training sessions with the New York State Public Welfare Association. Judge Becker became an active Supreme Court judge in 2011. He also helped establish the first drug treatment court for Delaware County in 2004.

The Beckers have a solid foundation of family values. He and his wife of 38 years, Christine, have two grown children and a precious granddaughter.

Delaware County has been served very fairly by Carl F. Becker for the past 10 years. Please cast your vote on Nov. 6, and help to re-elect Judge Becker to a second term as Delaware County judge.
