Canon 2A. An appearance of impropriety occurs when reasonable minds, with knowledge of all the relevant circumstances disclosed by a reasonable inquiry, would conclude that the judge’s honesty, integrity, impartiality, temperament, or fitness to serve as a judge is impaired. Public confidence in the judiciary is eroded by irresponsible or improper conduct by judges. A judge must avoid all impropriety and appearance of impropriety. This prohibition applies to both professional and personal conduct. A judge must expect to be the subject of constant public scrutiny and accept freely and willingly restrictions that might be viewed as burdensome by the ordinary citizen. Because it is not practicable to list all prohibited acts, the prohibition is necessarily cast in general terms that extend to conduct by judges that is harmful although not specifically mentioned in the Code. Actual improprieties under this standard include violations of law, court rules, or other specific provisions of this Code.

Wasn't his son just hired as an Asst DA for Herkimer County? How can the John hear any cases that his so brings to the court? The DA's office is the same thing as a Law Office. How can any one from the DA's office have cases heard by John? Just wondering.

His best friend is the DA and his wife was promoted over more experienced employees. The DA must payback the Judge for getting him elected. So why not make his son ADA? The Good Ol'Boys network is alive and well. Why would anything change now? Same players Same people Same families.Don't select the best individuals just keep it all in the Crandall family.

The full time position in the DA's office hasn't been filled yet? Sorta looks like we could save the county a lot of money by eliminating this full time ADA position that we don't seem too need.Since it hasn't been filled.Unless of course someone was waiting for the right timing to slip in another relative.

The timing was correct and Kyle Crandall was slipped into the position.

He would automatically have to recuse himself from those cases. blatant conflict of interest.

there is no way to "work" around it. Failing to recuse is a sure fire way to get a case overturned on appeal.

Bet and lose.

No they just slip Brennan on the bench for that trial. But of course he does whatever Crandall says anyway! Herkimer County has the worst Judicial system around. Also the Village Judge Manne is best friends with Jeff Carpenter and his former secretary is now Carpenter assistant. How nice and convenient!

which is why Brennan should never have been elected in the first place. The Herkimer lemmings went along with Aney's golden boy anyway.

If you want to solve the corruption issues in Herkimer County. Don't blame the judges for running.Don't blame the legislature. The blame belongs with the Republican leadership and the executive committee, and their inability to attract quality candidates.That is how we lost our Supreme Court seat, and why we are now dealing with Mrs " C U Next Tuesday" from Oneida County. Do any of you even know who the people are who are making these decisions? My bet is you don't. Because you are so ignorant is precisely why our new ADA's last name will be Crandall.If you want this to stop, you need to get off your lazy Axx and get involved. Otherwise you can spend your days and nights typing here achieving absolutely nothing. Because when you do nothing, nothing happens. So put up or shut up. It's up to you.

The answer isn't the Republican party committee..the answer is to run on the other party lines and really shake up the republican party. If they run as republicans, they just become more lemmings.

There are democrats who could run, there are independent and blanks who could run. The issue is to break open the system that makes their brain go numb. Break ranks with THE PARTY and move us forward away from a system of good ole boys and threats to those who dissent. Wouldn't it be wonderful!!

Ya know, there are many other elected positions in the County. Let's get these deadwood Republicans out of office. Then let Charter Reform begin. We need to have an elected County Administrator and not a good ole boy who has no accountability to the Herkimer County taxpayers.

Start with the Crandall's. Including the Brother. Then a better Republican Party. No one family should benefit from the County for doing so little. The same goes for all the free loaders in that County Building. Making their living at the expense of the true tax payers of the county. The farmer. Question? Ask yourself. When was the last time you saw a Crandall? Unless they were asking for your vote or signature. Then ask yourself. Why did I vote for them? Did I really believe that was the best we could do? Out of this entire gigantic county. Because if the measure of a great politician in Herkimer County is a sneaky,canniving, Crandall. We are all lost. Say what you want about George Aney, at least he gives back.
