“Why am I a candidate for Ulster County Surrogate?”
Ulster County Surrogate Court Judge
As Surrogate, I will run a Court that is responsive, fair, and efficient. I pledge to listen for the voices of those who can’t advocate for themselves and to hear them with respect, compassion and an open mind.
I have devoted 20 years to serving our community in elder law, estate and disability planning and probate matters. I have learned to help my clients deal with issues that are as ancient as the human family: free will and coercion, generosity and the basest kind of greed, families coming together and families being torn apart. I am proud of my work in Surrogate’s Court because my clients trust me to work hard to identify, protect and enforce the interests of their loved ones. Those are the values that I will bring to the Ulster Surrogate’s Court if elected.
