Jim won the official endorsements of several important law enforcement groups. The Affiliated Police Associations of Westchester, the Police Association of New Rochelle, and the Westchester County Police Benevolent Association (PBA) have all given their backing to Jim citing his longstanding record of leadership on law enforcement issues and commitment to dispensing fair and impartial justice. They join the growing list of organizations and community leaders who have announced their support of Maisano. He was previously endorsed by the Westchester Hispanic Law Enforcement Association.
Robert Caralyus, President of the Affiliated Police Associations of Westchester said that the organization’s selection of Maisano was an easy one to make. “Jim Maisano’s record -- as an attorney, a United States Marine veteran, and as a leader for over 13 years in the Westchester County Legislature -- is the experience we need on the bench.” Caralyus continued, “Jim has been the right kind of leader in Westchester and he’ll be the right kind of judge – smart, hardworking, and just.”
