A Message from Judge Norm Massry…
For the past five and a half years, I have presided over one of the busiest trial courts in upstate New York – the Colonie Justice Court. I have had the honor to serve our great community with respect and integrity, and to treat every case, large and small, with the utmost care and attention. I have worked steadfastly and diligently to dispense justice fairly and impartially, holding true to my belief that the judiciary should be characterized by integrity and independence, and with this, I humbly ask for your vote on November 3, 2015, as your next Supreme Court Justice.
