Jeanine Garritano Wadeson, Village Justice for the Village of Warwick for the past eight years, announces that she is seeking a third term in this year’s Village Election.
Wadeson is a graduate of Warwick Valley High school, a practicing attorney in Orange County for 20 years and a 38-year Village of Warwick resident.
“I recognize that, by and large, people coming to Village Court generally do not want to be there. Having been charged with a crime, having been issued a traffic or parking ticket or being a party to a civil matter is not a pleasant experience,” said Wadeson.
She continued, “I make it a practice to treat people with dignity and respect, impose appropriate sentences and, especially in the case of first-time or young offenders, use the encounter as an opportunity to offer my life experience as lawyer, judge and parent to try ‘coach’ that person down a different path. I am excited about the opportunity to continue to serve the residents of the Village of Warwick.”
Wadeson is a member of the Warwick Valley Rotary Club, a member of the Board of Trustees of Warwick Meals on Wheels, a founding mentor for the Warwick Valley High School Leadership Conference, a past president of the Park Avenue Elementary School PTA and a past Girl Scout Leader. She lives in Warwick with her husband, Craig, and two daughters.
