The Dutchess County Deputy Sheriffs Police Benevolent Association has endorsed County Court Judge Peter Forman for renomination in the coming primary election.
Dutchess County Deputy Sheriff and PBA president Ryan C. Griffin remarked on the endorsement: "Peter understands the importance of keeping the community safe by delivering stiff but fair sentences to serious offenders as well as helping those in need. He is honest, reliable, and willing to work the long hours needed for this position."
Judge Forman thanked the PBA for its endorsement: “I'm proud to have the endorsement of the Dutchess County Deputy Sheriffs Police Benevolent Association. Our County Sheriff's Deputies are some of the most professional, reliable, and dedicated public servants I've ever had the good fortune to work with.”
The endorsement comes just days after Judge Forman was similarly endorsed by the Dutchess County Independence Party. The primary will take place on June 23.
