Yorktown Town Justice candidate Gary Raniolo is touting the endorsement of the Westchester Police Benevolent Association to go along with previous endorsements from the Yonkers and Tarrytown police associations.
“After reviewing your position on matters of great importance to our membership, we have concluded that your record of accomplishment and commitment to the law enforcement community are of tremendous importance to the people you look to serve – the people of Yorktown and Westchester County. We are confident you will be a fair, honest and effective Town Justice” wrote Michael Hagan, President of the Westchester County Department of Public Safety Police Benevolent Association in a letter dated Sept. 12 and released by Raniolo’s campaign.
“I am appreciative of the recognition my experience and record has generated among the law enforcement community” Raniolo said in a statement. “Yorktown voters are particularly interested in what kind of relationship their judges will have with the public safety organizations that are responsible for their protection, and I am certain they will weigh that fact and support my candidacy on election day.”
Raniolo, who already had the Republican and Conservative lines on the fall ballot, defeated incumbent Democrat Ilan Gilbert in a primary for the Independence line Sept. 13.
