To the Editor:
Mar. 14, 2018: I am writing to urge Bronxville voters to support the candidacy of Natasha Nordahl for village justice.
I am not a Bronxville resident. However, I did have the privilege of working with Natasha, side by side, day in and day out, for 15 years (2000-2015) as a partner of a New York City law firm from which I am now retired. I headed a complex litigation group of which Natasha was the most integral and reliable part.
In this sense, I believe I have a unique perspective into Natasha’s qualifications for the bench. I support Natasha for two reasons:
First, she is a seasoned litigator with a broad knowledge of New York State court practice. She has a keen intellect. She has an extraordinary ability to distill complex legal issues. In short, she brings a wealth of professional experience that will serve her well as village justice if elected.
Secondly, and more importantly, is Natasha’s strength of character and moral compass. She is even-tempered; the ultimate “solid citizen.” There is a certain steadiness about her that few can match. She inspires confidence.
There is no other person in my professional or personal orbit that I trust or whom I can rely on more. I can pay her no greater compliment.
Natasha belongs on the bench. I hope Bronxville voters will put her there. They will be well served to do so.
Thank you for hearing me out.
Lawrence R. Green, Esq.
