Judge Elliott May Seek State Supreme Court
Certainly one of the most distinguished and respected local jurists, Ray Elliott is a fixture here in North Greenbush where he has served as Town Justice for 27 years. Ray appears to have an inside track for the Democratic nomination for State Supreme Court.
Elliott would certainly be a strong contender for the Democratic nomination for the seat being vacated by the retiring Edward O. Spain. He would also have a great chance of winning in the general election given the enrollment advantage Democrats enjoy.
Should he win, he would vacate his seat on town court in January, opening the door for an interim appointment and special election. All of us who know Ray wish him well and much success.
Here is a story in today's Times Union.
