County Legislator Jim Maisano's blog
Past and present colleagues gathered at the New York City office of Crowell & Morning to wish Jim well in his upcoming election. It's hard to get a group of lawyers to agree on anything, but the unanimous opinion in the room: Jim will make an outstanding Supreme Court Justice! Visit Jim's flickr page for photos from the event.
The night of Friday, June 18th Jim attended GOP Flag Day event in Bedford.

Saturday night, Jim attended the White plains Hospital Gala. Before heading off to have a Father's Day dinner with family, Jim attended the Senior Citizens Father's Day luncheon in Yonkers.
Jim will take a break from the campaign trail tonight as he and Marc Alexander coach New Rochelle Little League Team Dodgers in the Upper Minors semi-finals. The game is 5:30 at Lincoln Field. Jim and Marc are proud of the team and their great season. Good luck, Dodgers!** Update: Team Dodgers lost the game but had an amazing season! **
Jim had a busy Sunday with events all over Westchester County. One highlight: the annual church picnic at St. Anthony's in Yonkers. Councilman John Larkin introduced Jim to 250 very friendly members of the parish.
The other highlight is a long-time favorite of Jim and his family: the feast of St. Anthony at St. Joseph's Church in New Rochelle's West End. Jim marched in the procession of the St. Anthony statue through the streets and then headed to the festival with plenty of friends and even more great food. A wonderful way to cap off a busy weekend.
Many thanks to everyone who provided encouragement throughout the weekend. Check Jim's flickr page for photos from the weekend.
Friday night, Jim met with many fellow attorneys. First stop was the Yonkers' Lawyers Association Golf Outing at Lake Isle in Eastchester. Jim then went to the annual dinner for the Columbian Lawyers Association of Westchester (an Italian-American association) in New Rochelle.
Saturday morning Jim visited the Amenia Strawberry Fair in Dutchess County. After meeting a lot of wonderful people, eating some fresh strawberries and seeing a kangaroo (check out the flickr photos!), Jim headed back to Westchester to the Ossining Street Fair.
Special thanks to Putnam County Legislator Mike Kelsey and Ossining Councilman Peter Tripoto for taking time to introduce Jim to so many people. Make sure you visit Jim's flickr photostream.
Westchester County Legislator Jim Maisano announced today he is running this November for New York State Supreme Court Justice for the 9th Judicial District (Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange & Dutchess). Maisano has served on the Westchester County Board of Legislators for the past 13 years representing New Rochelle and Pelham and currently serves as Minority Leader.
Maisano stated, “I have been committed to public service since I joined the Marine Corps in 1984 and continue to honor this commitment through my service as a County Legislator. I have deep respect for the powerful impact of the courts and judiciary on people’s lives. I look forward to bringing my skills and experience to the bench. My goal is to be a judge that exemplifies Thomas Jefferson’s important ideal that ‘the most sacred of the duties of a government is to do equal and impartial justice to all its citizens.’”
