GREENBURGH, N.Y. In the November elections, Arlene Gordon-Oliver was reelected as town justice and joined by newcomers Water Rivera and Delores Brathwaite. They have already started working to improve the court system.
The swearing-in ceremony takes place on Thursday at 5 p.m. at Town Hall. The Honorable Theodore T. Jones, associate judge of the court of appeals, will officiate the induction.
The following is a joint statement issued by Gordon-Oliver, Rivera and Brathwaite:
We have met with the Hon. Charles Apotheker, supervising judge of the 9th judicial district, to discuss the current state of affairs of the Greenburgh Town Court, court personnel and protocols going forward.
We have also met with Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, town council members and Court Administrator Regina Hill to review and discuss the budget for 2012 insofar as it applies to the Greenburgh Town Court.
We agree that with the departure of Regina Hill, our first joint task is to select a new court administrator, and to that end we have already begun the interview process.
We have agreed to add additional night court sessions to tackle the backlog of vehicle and traffic law cases.
The three town justices are looking forward to the new term of office, commencing on Jan. 1, 2012, and are honored to serve the town of Greenburgh in this capacity.
We renew our pledge and commitment to work diligently and as a team to address the legal and administrative issues that are before us.
