Dear Patchogue Village Residents,

Earlier this year, I was asked by Mayor Paul Pontieri and the Patchogue 2014 team to consider running for Patchogue Village Justice in the upcoming March 2014 election, and it was with great pride that I accepted their nomination. As a local attorney who has maintained a law practice in the Village for many years, I am confident that my knowledge of the law, life experience and strong commitment to improve the quality of life in our community, uniquely qualifies me to serve as your Village Justice.

Patchogue Village has been my home for over thirty-two years, and while I may be a “new comer,” my family’s roots grow deep. One of our three children attended the same elementary school as my husband, his mother and his grandmother. And, when it came time to settle down, two of our children bought homes in the Village. I am happy that as adults, they will continue our family’s rich tradition in Patchogue.

In the days leading up to the election, you will learn much about my 
judicial qualifications, volunteerism and strong track record of community service as former chairperson of two Village Boards, member of the Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce and as a Director on the Board of the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association, to list just a few. More importantly, I will have the opportunity to meet you, the residents of Patchogue Village. I look forward to seeing many of you as I go door-to-door on the campaign trail, and if elected, I will be honored to serve as the first woman Village Justice in Patchogue’s 120 year 


Patricia K. Romeo, Esq.
