Letters to the Editor: February 25, 2010


Her love of Cooperstown was very evident, and her passion for this town factored greatly in our decision to move here. We became immediate friends. She is the type of person one would want in a friend _ loyal, giving, and sincere. In addition, she is intelligent, educated, and extremely well-read. She can be found every morning with the New York Times in hand, keeping up on news and current events.

Leslie is currently the acting Village Justice of Cooperstown. On this basis alone, she is an outstanding candidate for Village Justice, as she knows and understands the demands of the position. She has developed an excellent relationship with the members of the court and has earned their respect.

A good judge, one that would be good for this town, is one that is impartial _ one that hears both sides of a story and makes decisions based on facts and within the bounds of the law. Leslie has purposely chosen to be nonpartisan. She is a registered independent because she likes to look at all sides and choose a candidate based on the best candidate and not just because of a party affiliation.

She carries this attitude into the courtroom and is a fair Justice. Furthermore, Leslie has a J.D. from New York University Law School, one of the top law schools in this country.

She has been practicing law for over 20 years, and as a result, is well versed in the law.

She has shown, through her tenure as acting Village Justice, to be adept at making astute decisions. For these reasons, Leslie Friedman has shown us to be a good citizen, a talented judge, and should be allowed to continue to serveCooperstown as the Village Justice.

We will be voting for her on March 16th, and we urge you to do the same.
