The City of Glens Falls Common Council approved a resolution (4-0) Tuesday night approving the appointment of Jacquelyn P. White, Esq. to the position of Part-Time City Court Judge by Mayor Bill Collins. Ms. White will serve for the 2023 calendar year. The position became vacant when current Part-Time City Court Judge Nikki Moreschi, Esq. resigned the position to take an opportunity in another state.
During last night's Common Council meeting, Mayor Collins stated “her appointment will fulfill the unexpected departure of Nikki Moreschi. In 2021, Judge Moreschi ran for her second term, a six (6) year term. During the first year of her term, Moreschi took a position out of state and had to resign. But it was too late to hold an election. So, what we’re doing here is approving the appointment for the year 2023 and this (coming) year there will be an election of a new Part-Time City (Court) Judge. “
Per the Uniform City Court Act (UCT) Chapter 497, Article 21, Section 2104 entitled “Organization of city courts, whenever a vacancy in the office of city court judge occurs other than by expiration of term, the mayor of the city in which the court on which the vacancy has occurred shall appoint a qualified person to fill the vacancy temporarily until the 31st day of December following the next general city election at which the vacancy can be filled.”
