Please vote for Dana Beyer during the Republican primary

Ladies and gentlemen of Hamilton County,

I am asking for your consideration to vote for me on primary day on the Republican Party line. I have the necessary qualifications, education and experience to excel in this endeavor. I completed my undergraduate studies at George Washington University in Washington D.C. with a BA in criminal justice. While pursuing my degree, I worked as an intern in the U.S. Attorney’s office preparing cases for trial. I then attended Quinnipiac University School of Law in Hamden, Conn. graduating and getting admitted to the Connecticut and New York Bar.

Prior to moving to Washington, I served as a deputy sheriff for Schenectady County working in the warrant squad. My interest then peaked in the legal field since I frequently appeared and testified in court and wanted to further a career in law. I come from a long line of committed community-minded people as my grandfather was a Montgomery County deputy before becoming Cranesville’s town justice. My mother is a retired Schenectady County deputy sheriff, so as you can see, public service is in my blood.

I have worked in all facets and phases of criminal, civil and family trials. I have over 100 jury verdicts which are from case intake to jury verdict and post verdict motions. Not only am I admitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Southern District of New York, I have argued cases before the court.

After passing the Bar exams, I began as an associate representing clients in the local courts representing them for misdemeanors and an occasional felony case. I have tried numerous DWI trials and speeding infraction cases. I was a special public defender and tried serious federal organized crime and gang cases successfully to a jury. I then worked for five years as a Westchester County attorney. I worked with the Westchester County Department of Corrections and Police’s Special Investigations Units assisting them and prosecuting corruption from within. I currently work for Allstate Insurance Company as a senior trial counsel.

I am a lifelong Wells and Adirondack resident helping to raise five children. I am a member of the NRA holding a Hamilton County pistol permit for many years. I am a member of the Wells Fish and Game Club and Algonquin Snow Blazers. I feel its time to give back to Hamilton County the benefits of my years as a trial lawyer. I have the tenacity, extreme determination and high level of competence necessary to be successful as your district attorney. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting the residents of the county in my campaign travels. Many of you also know me as “Hoss,” a nickname given to me at Wells Old Home Days back in the early ’70s that has stuck with me all my life. So a vote for Dana J. Beyer is a vote for Hoss in the June 25 Republican primary.

Thank you for your consideration.
