On Thursday, there will be a primary for the position of Gloversville City Court judge. This position is quite possibly the most significant elected post in our city. The term is for 10 years and has a profound impact upon far more people, litigants or defendants than just simply the folks who appear before the court. In every court I know of, "the court" is the judge behind the bench. All in the community rely on the judicial dedication, experience and professional commitment of the judge who administers the function of the court. As I've said, the court is the judge, and all in the community are impacted by this simple fact.
