Congratulations!
I emailed you during the election regarding the illegal placement of your signs on property and telephone poles in the Village of Depew. You returned my email and assured me that all the signs would be removed after election I would appreciate it if you would remove the signs at Transit and French Roads. There is one by Wilson Farms and another across the street south of Antoinette Sweets. They are bolted into the telephone poles.
Thank you.

A judge in today's courts and with today's issues needs to be a person with extensive legal training for many reasons, but especially to stop the judicial degeneration that politic's massive invasion has formed to corrupt.
Mr. Delano might have great intentions and may have some knowledge of criminal law, but a judgeship is inclusive of many other facets of law, which includes some very convoluted and complex civil cases and all judges need the experience and knowledge to interpret and apply the law accurately.... which does not easily come with being a detective from the local police dept.
I am not a friend of either candidate, but I have tremendous experience in the judicial field, and am concerned about the direction the courts are going in for a long time, and for citizen voters to elect someone who may not be qualified for a judgeship, terrifies me.
Judges need to be vetted thoroughly and completely, which should includes their entire past personal, professional and educational histories...otherwise their ability to judge all who come before them...is compromised.
Yes..Cheektowaga has had non lawyer judges and at times that was a mistake for the town. If you are not in the field, you beleive that heart is all that is needed for such a life determining job, but the law is complex and the interpreter of it, needs to be able to do just that.
Cheektowaga made a mistake on this one.

Right now you have at least 12 "Lawyers", one of which is
" The Annointed One ", running this entire country, and look what a wondeful job their doing.

Mr Delano has no right to this position. Shame on the people of Cheektowaga. The Pennysaver ran an article which showed that we have just elected a man without a college education. The only reason anyone knows his name is because of 2 high profile cold cases he was involved in. This is someone who thinks as a cop. Police officers do not worry about the intricate details of the law. When they arrest someone they believe them guilty, it is still up to the court whether the person is guilty or innocent. Although I believe that the court system is too easy on repeat offenders I also do not believe that Mr. Delano is the answer. He is just an unemployed ex-cop from Buffalo who was looking for a job.
What a shame

I hope the one who spoke of the 12 Lawyers in the "country" never has to find out what it's like to go in from of a judge who only has experience as a cop. If you think cops and judges are on the same side you are sadly mistaken. There is much more involved in guarding the rights of an individual. Good luck! Hopefully you will never meet Mr Delano face-to-face.

There are lawyers elected and sitting as judges in all the courts higher than the many town courts, that are allowed to elect non-attys as judges, that display less than acceptable behavior, but that unacceptability is generated from unethical misconduct and misplaced liberal ideology , rather than the fact that they are educated lawyer, who have studied all forms and functions of the law and it's applicability.
Politics plays a disturbing role in judicial elections, where they often falsify the abilities and demeanors of those that are running and whom they are promoting... as you need only ask those who work for and next to judges or appear in front of the them...how sadly many of them should be eliminated or never elected..as that troubling number of inept judges, is growing at disturbingly high levels!
Because a cop is a hero, does not make him material for an appropriate and intelligent judicial position... as it is, what it is....a cop who stood up to city hall to expose judicial ineptness and municipal corruption.
This action by Delano was not worthy of a judicial position....as the reality of this extremely important job deserves a legally competent individual with a law degree and hopefully in the future, the elimination of politics from every aspect of this entity.

Quite frankly, I think Delano will be more honest, more understanding of community issues, more aware of repeat crime offenders, and because he is NOT an Attorney---it definitely guarentees the public THAT HE IS NO SNAKE ATTORNEY THAT WILL FIND THE LOOPHOLES TO LET OFF THE OFFENDERS THAT HURT PEOPLE. Because he was a great detective, he knows the streets, knows the game, knows the system and SCREW Downtown and all the so called TitleHeads!!! Delano did what he knew was right as a man and because of it 2 innocent people are free. Sorry Egg is all over certain DAs Downtown and Screw whoever cant handle the truth!! Delano will do a fine job, and I would rather have him then half the corrupt scum that presently sits in place on many levels in diversified administrations!!!! Hats Off Delano!!!! Hold your head high. You definitely are a hero and will do one magnificent job! You have INTEGRITY!!!! They cant spell the word let alone possess it!!!

Bail is set for flight risk purposes..what did you do to get bail..warrants..felony charges that may make you willing to flee?
The last thing we need is lenient judges to let out repeat or felony offenders.
So if you want to remain free..stay the heck out of trouble!
