CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. Town Justice David Zuckerman has been endorsed for election to the position of Westchester County Court Judge by the Westchester County Democratic Party.
Zuckerman was chosen from a field of eight candidates as the Democratic Party nominee for the county court election scheduled for Nov. 6.
I am honored that the Westchester County Democratic Party has nominated me to be its candidate for Westchester County Court," Zuckerman said in statement. "My experience as a 24-year Westchester County resident, judge, prosecutor and litigator in private practice for more than 30 years has given me a deep appreciation and understanding of our justice system. I look forward to continuing my service to the people of Westchester County."
Zuckerman is a 24-year resident of New Castle and was initially elected to town justice in 2007. He has since been reelected to two additional two-year terms in 2009 and 2011.
Zuckerman began his legal career in 1982 as assistant district attorney in the Bronx. Shortly after, he opened his own law practice with offices in Westchester and the Bronx. Before being elected to his current town justice position, he served as town prosecutor from 1992 to 2007.
I have known Judge Zuckerman since 2000. He is a man of great integrity and a superior judge," said Reginald Lafayette, chairman of the Westchester County Democratic Party, in a statement. "His 30 years of experience as an attorney and six years as New Castle Town Justice have prepared him well to be an outstanding addition to the Westchester County Court bench.
Zuckerman has also spent 16 years on the board of the Drug Abuse Prevention Council in New Castle, a board member for New Castle C.A.R.E.S. and an EMT with Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
