Experience Matters in Selecting a City Court Judge

By David Boniello
Candidate - Niagara Falls City Court Judge

SEP 15, 2015


For more than 35 years, residents of Niagara Falls have trusted me to help them make some of the most important decisions of their lives. Whether that was dealing with the death of a loved one, buying their first home or representing them in a court of law, I have had the honor of representing clients, their children and their grandchildren. 

The decision to leave private practice and, hopefully, serve as city court judge is my way to help give back to a city that I call home.

The race for city court judge may not be on the radar of many voters -- but it should be. No one needs to detail the problems affecting our children, our families and our neighborhoods throughout our community. We are all well aware that crime needs to be curtailed and the rights of victims need to be protected.

That is why, more than ever, our city court needs someone on the bench that brings the necessary background and moral characteristics that will protect the judicial process and give every case and every person the same treatment.

The importance of impartiality in the courtroom is vital. In my experience, whether in private practice or when serving as assistant district attorney for Niagara County or any of the other towns and cities I've represented, I have found the best judges to be those who can ensure fair and balanced treatment of litigants, jurors, witnesses and lawyers.

During my campaign I have walked through neighborhoods around our city and the most common refrain among parents, homeowners, city workers, business owners and our senior population is the hope that our political system will reward the competent over the connected.

Our city needs a judge that is respected for their legal expertise and professional qualifications. Our city needs a judge that will be even-tempered, open-minded and, above all else, qualified. Our city needs a judge that will not be threatened by the politics of the moment or influenced by special interests.

As a candidate for city court judge I have remained nonpartisan, resolute and authentic. I have stressed to voters that they can have complete confidence that I will remain faithful to the law and will never allow any personal relationship influence my judicial conduct or judgment. I have guaranteed fairness and justice for all.

On September 10, residents of Niagara Falls can, once again, entrust me with one of the biggest decisions they can make: choosing me to represent their best interests in court. This time as city court judge.

Thank you.
