(WHITE PLAINS, NY) Westchester County Board of Legislators Majority Leader Catherine Borgia released the following statement upon the news that Westchester County DA Janet DiFiore is expected to be nominated as the Chief Judge of the NYS Court of Appeals by Governor Cuomo:

“Janet DiFiore has always been a fair and prudent adjudicator of justice throughout her career and has been instrumental in making the residents of Westchester feel that they have safe communities to live in.  During her tenure, she has handled several high profile cases and always demonstrated a professionalism that emanated through her entire office.  Westchester’s loss will be the gain of the entire state as she hopefully takes her public service to the Court of Appeals.  I urge all of Westchester’s Senators to vote in favor of her confirmation when the Senate returns in January.”
