As an active community leader and volunteer in Little Falls, I am endorsing Mark Rose for Herkimer County Family Court Judge in this month’s primary election.

Mark is a native of Little Falls who has spent his life serving within our local legal system as both a lawyer and a judge. Married to an educator and always active within this community, Mark has a keen awareness of the demands placed upon our families and our young people. This knowledge coupled with his patient, steadfast personality will help him make the right decisions when faced with tough choices.

Mark is also a man who steps up when asked and has given back to this community by lending his support to Think Local Little Falls, the Little Falls Cheese Festival, Canal Celebration, the Little Falls Food Pantry, and the Y Concert Series, to name a few. He generously provided pro bono work to Main Street First when our organization first applied for 501(c)3 status and again when we incorporated. Throughout the process, Mark took the time to ensure we understood the details and patiently answered all our questions.

In my personal experiences with Mark, I have found that he brings not only legal expertise and knowledge to the table, but also empathy, kindness, and unwavering patience. These are the qualities I desire in a person asking to serve in the position of family court judge. I urge you to vote in this upcoming election and hope that you will join me in casting a vote for Mark Rose to be our Herkimer County Family Court Judge.

Thank you,
Rob Richard
