In their first wave of general election endorsements, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Associate of the City of New York has endorsed Ron Castorina, Jr. in his candidacy for Judge of the Surrogate’s Court. The PBA recognized Ron’s “commitment to public service and legal experience” and that they believe Ron is “well qualified to serve the people of Staten Island on the Surrogate’s Court bench.”

On the matter, Ron Castorina said, “I would like to thank President Pat Lynch and the PBA for their endorsement of my candidacy for the Surrogate’s Court, it truly is an honor. New York’s bravest have put their trust in me to serve some of the most vulnerable in our community, and I do not take that lightly. I have dedicated my life to the law and value those who put their life on the line to enforce it. Giving my all as a public servant is part of my passion for justice and fairness.  That’s what I bring to the table: experience, knowledge, passion and commitment to the community, and that’s what the PBA sees in my candidacy, for which I am truly grateful.”
