Ask yourself regarding the Family Court judge race. There are three candidates. One is a female democrat with plenty of legal experience. Now, obviously George isn't going to endorse a democrat. But there are two candidates running as republicans right now. One has plenty of legal experience. But that's not who George endorsed. he endorsed Brennan, who has no legal experience except for being a law clerk for Judge Daley. A clerk. Look around at all the signs for Brennan, yet he's got no qualifications. George's plan is to get him to the stepping stone of Family court judge, then once Daly retires, move him up. This is not what we need in Herkimer and that is what Aney is pushing for. Keep that in mind when you vote.
Sure, Aney's a shrewd attorney. but be wary otherwise

The same thing is happening with the County Judge. Kirk should have been endorsed by the Republican Party but apparently Aney is backing Crandall. Look at the huge Brennan-like sign on his front lawn. Yes, he's a good attorney. But he controls Herkimer County with his money and power.

Yup. George is the ultimate benevolent monarch. Trouble is, we are supposed to live in a democracy. Go figure why people get angry.

If it wasn't for his corrupt judges, corrupt Herkimer County DA (John Crandall & Mike Daley), a few of is corrupt asst. DA's, corrupt police officers, and corrupt attorney's that dirt bag would be nothing.....If anyone has anything to say about this, let me know and I will find a way to pass out some court documents for all of you to see. Most of these people belong behind BARS.
If the people of Herkimer County cared about there County they would kick John Crandall’s ass out of town along with Mike Daley and George Aney. They are the one's that have ruined this County.

If you all look back on what these people have been doing over the years you would certainly agree with me. When the New York Times talks about George Aney and how they insinuate he's the boss man in Herkimer County then in another article it states that Herkimer County is one of the most corrupt County's in New York State.

Hey Yup

What cloud have you been on all these years! Since 1976 that I know of, Herkimer has had nothing but dirty and corrupt judges and attorneys. You sound like your one of those dirt bags, anyone that lives in Herkimer knows what’s gone on, but were and still are afraid to talk out loud about the dirt bags for fear of retaliation. These people have left a lot of unjust victims in there wake.

I heard he's "light in the loafers", but if you don't mind that, he's supposed to be one of the better attorneys around. He tried to convince a good friend of mine 30 or 35 years ago to stick around in "The Valley". That there was a lot of money to be made defending the locals and that the cost of living in the area would allow him to live like a king! My friend moved away anyways and still made a lot of money as a judge in another state.
He's a better lawyer because he owns the judges, local and State Police. How could you not be a better lawyer.....He's the DON! Or at least he thinks he is..."OH" ask you’re self in the last thirty years how many times have you been called for jury duty????? If it's once or maybe twice...maybe certain people are being called more than others...get my drift!!

Have to agree 100%. I worked for George many, many years ago and couldn't have asked for a better boss. Always willing to help out any and all. As long as you treated him respectfully, he would go above and beyond what was asked of him. Really great guy. This country would be a lot better place if more lawyers were like him (of course, then we wouldn't have all the crooked-lawyer jokes - LOL).
Sounds like you really like George...Just how close were you?

George Aney is absolutely a great guy. He is probably the most concerned citizen in this county and does all good for it. He does so many good things for people it's impossible to fault the man. He's a genuinely wonderful human being and a brilliant lawyer to top it off.
LOL!

Why don't you ask DA John Crandall about the houses bought and sold and were he buys them..you might ask Nick Macri the same question.

Just to let you know.. DA John Crandall, Mike Daley, George Aney, Under Sheriff George Treen, Ex officer Bob Snell and their Gestapo are putting the pressure on us now! The TRUTH is really hurting them.....TOUGH &%^$! When they set us up (MANY TIMES) and ran us through their dirty corrupt judges (MANY TIMES) and gave us a criminal record unjustly and don't have the brains after ruining us to stop harassing us. To have the brass to have been harassing us on and off for the past 25 years of our LIFE to be exact and they now want us to move out of the state like they forced the others? I DON"T THINK SO!!!!!!!!!! You can sick all your friends, cop friends, State troopers and anyone else after us but you will have to set us up again or kill us before we shut our mouths. Your days of having your victims cower; hide and try to avoid you are over. We are going to speak out and never let scum like you ruin any person in Herkimer County unjustly ever again. From now on we will inform the people of Herkimer County of any problems publicly through topix.com . To ensure that we are on a level playing field (some what?) we have notified News organizations, television stations and talk shows of topix.com . and what we are trying to accomplish.

I was told that George Aney, DA John Crandall, Mike Daley and others of their caliber have been walking on very thin ice for a very long time and just a matter of time before their little world falls in.

All of you who've bashed him do not know anything about him and probably have never worked with him. He is the best around. For once dont be jealous of a good person.
