Town justice-elect has second thoughts

Dec 15, 2015 7:15 am

John Mason is reporting in the Register-Star newly elected Greenport town justice Glen Graziano has decided he does not want the job after all. Town Supervisor John Porreca (Poor-EEK-ah) said he does not know exactly why Graziano changed his mind, but he did attend a rookie justice class for a few days. Porreca said, "“He decided he wanted to get out of it.” The former town councilman ran as an unopposed Republican candidate alongside incumbent Democrat Francis Abitabile (ABB-eh-tabb-el). Porreca said the incoming town board will now have to appoint someone. If the town board cannot find a candidate, then David Dellehunt of the Office of Court Administration would make the selection. The position pays approximately $11,000 a year. The two justices divide four nights of town court and one special criminal court session a month between them.
