Putnam County Bar Association
Town Justice Christi J. Acker, 50, is currently running for the Supreme Court in the Ninth Judicial District and is presently serving her 10th year presiding over the Pine Plains Town Justice Court in Dutchess County. She also serves as a Principal Court Attorney to County Court/Acting Supreme Court Justice James T. Rooney in Putnam County. She graduated from Villanova University School of Law and started practicing in 1992.
Her two-year term as the President of the Putnam County Bar Association began in January.
Acker said that the 90-member bar association is a relatively small organization which is currently striving to remain relevant to its members. The group will be focused on organising various events to facilitate social interactions between its members, providing high school scholarships and preparing for their annual dinner on Oct. 12. The association is also concerned with ensuring the presence of counsel at every criminal arraignment and increasing their membership.
"Although the legal community in Putnam County is small, there is plenty of talent, intellect and professionalism," said Acker. "It has been a pleasure to work in the community for the past 25 years." Additional officers are first vice president Faye Thorpe; second vice president Stamatia Dewbury; secretary Kathy M. Valletta; and treasurer Hon. Thomas Jacobellis.
