I can and will be voting for Judge Prince. I think what that person wrote is terrible, and I hope Judge Prince finds out who said it and takes legal action against them.

Ahhhh...bologna!! He IS tough as he is supposed to be!!! If you don't like it, don't get into trouble. Problem solved! And if the lawyers are upset cause he's a little too mean, too bad. I'm sure there are plenty of judges that are rough on attorney's. Comes with the territory - don't like it? Get a different job.

David is honest, fair, and does his job well.A true role model citizen. If people have problems with him, they are probably on the wrong side of the law.

I just wish he was smart enough to merge the 2 court systems into 1. If you can look out of the window of 1 court and see the other it has 2 be a waste of money to run both entities. Hell in the town of Hamburg they will run a couple of hundred through in a day. Paying 1 judge and 1 clerk.

If you say so, it must be true--not. What training do you have to determine if someone is drunk, cops have that training do you? You are the one blowing political S_hit!

I agree that someone obviously has an axe to grind with Judge Prince. I am a police officer but not in the Village of Fredonia. I have many dealings with the Town of Pomfret Court and the numerous ADAs and legal professionals that frequent the court. I have never heard a bad thing uttered by these professionals about Judge Prince. I find that Judge Prince does his job and does it well. He is fair, professional and firm. He goes above and beyond what other judges do. Often when arrests occur in the north end of the county at all hours of the night Judge Prince ALWAYS can be contacted and responds for arraignments. He often does this for the justices of OTHER TOWNS. I do not know how long Judge Prince has served as a justice but I believe it has been for about twenty years. It is a shame that a couple individuals are attacking his (and his court clerk's) personal life.

The disgusting political game being played here by the DeJoe family and supporters of Dave DeJoe tells the whole story of them.

People in Fredonia are too smart for this and it will backfire.

I wonder how much trouble a judge candidate gets in for this sort of personal attack?

Oh I get it Wellnow. You bash a local justice because you do not like him and then you bash someone you do not because an honest, professional and impartial opinion is posted on this forum. It says a lot of your credibility.
<quoted text>
And of course NONE of the other posts supporting Mr. Prince have anything to do with politics. So, if I get this straight, only those posts supporting Judge Prince are "honest, professional and impartial". Is that correct? I just want to know what the rules of the game are.

I could care less about the politics of the Village of Fredonia and Town of Pomfret. I do not know how to play your little game or what the rules are. Personally I would take the election of a person to the postion of Town Justice as an important event and not a game. I know nothing of Judge Prince's personal life or the personal life his opponent for that matter. What I do know is that Judge Prince is an excellent Town Justice, in fact one of the best in Chautauqua County.

In your opinion, you mean. And since you don't know anything about his personal habits, by your own admission, than how in the Hell do you make statements about their importance or veracity? I'd think a person's morals and truthfulness would be hugely important relative to qualifications for a judge at any level.

Plenty of trouble, apparently. Found this online:

If a police officer is coming forward to voice his support of a Judicial candidate, that's something I would certainly pay attention to. I wouldn't think the police would be fond of a judge who was easy on the criminals they work so hard to collar. If the police like him, it must mean he's tough on criminals. If this person badmouthing the Judge isn't a member of his opposition, they undoubtedly are someone who appeared before him with a negative result for them. I would venture to say perhaps even jail?

Cops aren't fond of lots of things, especially laws that "handcuff" them, in their opinion. They also detest judges that actually force them to adhere to the law when making arrests. Ask that poor guy from Dunkirk who was viciously smeared in the press for child molestation and rape how he feels after winning his trial and then having the DA try to try him again on the one charge remaining before the judge said NO WAY!!! I'm sure the cops and DA have been badmouthing the jury, the judge and the whole system after that. I mean, you wouldn't expect any of them to admit maybe they made a rush to judgement.

If it were up to me, Judges would be appointed by a non-partisan panel of lawyers, something, but anything but elections. The same with DA's. I find it scary as Hell that people with that much power have to pander for votes. No judge should serve more than one 10 year term, at ANY level. The whole system is corrupt.

You are right it is my opinion. My PROFESSIONAL opinion. An opinion based on what I see in the court room and how he serves the people who elected him. He goes above and beyond what other judges do. Some justices never answer the phone after hours. Judge Prince does. He controls his court. He does not put up with nonsense. Unlike your's, my opinion is not based on a personal bias.

Good for you, officer! I'm with you. He does a fine job, in my opinion. Just dealing with all those college students alone is no small task. Personally, I've never been in trouble with the law, so I don't have issues with ANY police officers or judges.

What about the morals and truthfulness of a certain past democratic President who's wife is now secretary of state? Talk about morals!

A judge appointed by Lawyers-what a joke. The jury is of your peers, the same people that elect the judge, as it should be. Lawyera appointing Judges, everyone would get off then!
