Balanced Candidate for Orchard Park Town Justice
"My name is Michael Pastrick, and I'm running for Orchard Park Town Justice.
"Many years ago, I chose to make the law the essential part of my professional life. The insight and understanding that I have gained through the years raising my family, litigating in our trial courts, teaching young lawyers, and advising judges -- Republican and Democrat alike -- in the highest courts of our state has proven invaluable.
"As a senior counsel at New York State's highest court (the Court of Appeals), I have been fortunate enough to positively affect the lives of millions of people, from Buffalo to New York City and all parts in between. Now it's time put that experience to work for you in the most important place in the state -- at home, in Orchard Park, with you.
“When I was approached about the opportunity to earn the position of Orchard Park Town Justice, I thought long and carefully about what our community needs in that job. Ideological and professional balance, the relatability and understanding that comes with community roots, and proper, exhaustive preparation were key factors in my mind.
“Once I realized that I not only satisfy all of those criteria, but have the best combination of the temperament, the balance, the deep local roots, and the unmatched preparation at the highest levels of our state judiciary that Orchard Park deserves in a Town Justice, it was an easy decision to get to work.
"That's why my family and I are dedicated to earning your vote for Orchard Park Town Justice. On Primary Day, please look for my name and make your choice count. Please Pick Pastrick -- Michael Pastrick -- for Orchard Park Town Justice."
