I enjoyed reading The Westbury Times this week, as I always do, but wanted to write to clarify a point that was made in your article entitled “Westbury Mayor, Village Justice Prioritize Safety.”
The article opens with an assertion that Village Judge Liotti and I “admittedly don’t agree on much.” However, while Judge Liotti and I have in the past disagreed on several points, there are many more points on which we agree than those on which we disagree. In fact, I would say that, when it comes to the village, we are almost always on the exact same page.
The respective roles that we have to play sometimes means that our points of view are expressed in different ways, but Judge Liotti and I both share the overriding desire to do what is best for our residents. Judge Liotti and I have a warm, cordial and cooperative personal and professional relationship. I appreciate the things that he has done to make Westbury better, and the board and I are proud of the work that he and Associate Judge Beth Pessala have done in making the Westbury Village Court a model local court in all of New York State.
