Dryden Democrats choose Valentinelli for Town Justice

Meeting at Etna's Houtz Hall on Tuesday night, a Democratic caucus unanimously selected Joseph Valentinelli, the incumbent Town Justice, to run again as their candidate this November. County Legislator Mike Lane spoke glowingly about Judge Valentinelli's fairness and passion for the job.

Valentinelli taught at Dryden Central School for 37 years and is completing his second term as Town Justice. He was previously a Justice for the Village of Dryden before the Town and Village consolidated their courts.

He is one of two judges in the Town of Dryden Court. Justice Christopher Clausson is not up for re-election this year, having been re-elected last year. The election will be in November, the only town position on the ballot.
