County Legislator tries to get out of ticket

Postby bignflnut » Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:47 am

How long can you stand this pathetic blubbering?

Jennifer Schwartz Berky, Ulster County legislator, gets a speeding ticket. Released by town of Ulster, 10/24/17.



Here's the full stop.

Anyone want to comment?

Party Affiliation:
Democrat, Green, Working Families


Born and raised in New York City, Jennifer earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from SUNY Stony Brook and Masters’ degrees in Urban Planning and Real Estate Development from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. She is also certified in conservation by ICCROM, an intergovernmental UNESCO program in Rome, Italy. Ms. Berky has lived for several years abroad during her career and studies, and is fluent in Spanish, French and Italian.


You don't say... :roll:
The video released earlier this week of my Town of Ulster traffic stop captured a tough moment for me,” stated Berky. “Like so many working families, I too face tough times and stressful situations. As a professional, a public servant and a mother, I know my interaction with Police Officer Gary Short was unacceptable. I want to apologize to Officer Short and thank him for his patience and professionalism with me during a very difficult time.”

She continued:

“This has been a humbling experience for me. I hope to use it to grow and learn how to better represent the diverse working families who reside in the great the city of Kingston.”

SNIP

A joint statement of support for Berky was also released today by Joseph Donaldson, chairman of the Kingston Democratic Committee; Phil Leber, regional political director of the Working Families Party; Callie Jayne, lead organizer of Citizen Action of the Hudson Valley; and Hector Rodriguez, Democratic leader of the Ulster County Legislature.

“Jennifer has been a dedicated public servant for decades and an important progressive voice on the Ulster County Legislature. We stand united in supporting her re-election as the legislator of District 7. We know she is a knowledgeable city planner, environmental advocate, and steadfast champion of human rights– her many strengths serve her well in her her position as a legislator, including her ability to reflect and learn from her experiences…We would like to thank Officer Short for his professionalism and patience in a difficult situation.”

Hopefully someone has a long talk with officer Short on issuing a citation he knows to be false.

It could be a bad day for Short if Berky contested the seat belt ticket and showed up with a copy of the video, especially if Short had just testified that Berky wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Standard practice. The DA and judge/magistrate are only to happy to go along with. Odds are the LEO wouldn't be there for your "trial". The judge/magistrate will gladly postpone the "trial" till such time as the LEO can make an appearance and write the correct ticket. Have dealt with such issues before. At that level (traffic court) they really aren't interested in justice or doing what is right; they just want their money.
