It is indeed a pleasure and a privilege to be president of the New York State Magistrates Association for 2019- 2020. Our organization of more than 2,000 town and village justices is devoted to rendering impartial justice for all who come before us. Since revolutionary times, and before, the justice courts have been the bulwark of defending the rights of the average citizen. Our mission is to continue to do that, now and in the future.
