Pittsford appoints Shaddock as Town Justice

The Pittsford Town Board on Tuesday appointed attorney Robert M. Shaddock to the position of Town Justice. His appointment fills a vacancy in Town Court created by the recent election of Town Justice William K. Taylor to the State Supreme Court.

The appointed term runs from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2016, and Judge Shaddock would be eligible to stand for election in 2016 for a full four-year term.

“Pittsford is fortunate to have had numerous qualified candidates for the position of Town Justice,” said Pittsford Councilman Jared C. Lusk, who chaired the selection committee.

“Mr. Shaddock stood out.  His extensive legal experience as a trial attorney and his service as an Assistant Public Defender and an Administrative Law Judge for the Monroe County Department of Health equips him well to serve with distinction.”

Shaddock is a graduate of Hobart College and SUNY at Buffalo Law School.  He is a partner with Barclay Damon LLP in Rochester. He has spent 20 years on the Town’s Zoning Board of Appeals and Parks and Recreation Board and has been Board Chair of the Southeast YMCA, as well as coaching Pittsford Little League. He and his wife, Mary, have lived in Pittsford for 29 years and have two adult children, John and Charles.
