Respected attorney and former candidate for New York State Attorney General John Sarcone today announced that he is running for New York State Supreme Court Justice in the Ninth Judicial District covering Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange and Dutchess counties.

“I deeply appreciate the tremendous outpouring of support that I have received encouraging me to run for State Supreme Court,” said John Sarcone. “After more than two decades practicing law in state and federal court, it would be the honor of a lifetime to serve the lower Hudson Valley on the State Supreme Court. I believe in hard work, dedication and perseverance and, as a Supreme Court Justice, I will bring those qualities to the courthouse every day to ensure people are treated fairly.”

Sarcone has more than 20 years’ experience practicing law, with cases published in state and federal case books more than 34 times. He served as the 14th Regional Administrator for the United States General Services Administration for New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands and earned the Administrator’s Exceptional Service Award in 2020 for excellence in customer service, innovation, leadership, mission results and cost savings. Sarcone also led the COVID-19 Regional Rapid Response in NYC to mobilize necessary resources to supply hospitals with PPE and coordinating the safe operation of federal and US court buildings. As an attorney in private practice, Sarcone won a 10-figure settlement from ExxonMobil/Sunoco for groundwater contamination in the Town of Highlands, NY and secured funding and helped oversee the construction of the Town’s first municipal water supply. He served as General Counsel to one of the largest police and security unions in the country and to The Association of Commuter Rail employees representing more than 7000 NYS MTA workers. John and his wife, Cecilia, live in Croton-on-Hudson with their three children John Anthony (17), Francesca (16) and Juliet (13) who attends Croton Harmon schools.
