Jim Montagnino: Public Safety Commissioner

Jim is an exceptionally qualified candidate for Commissioner of Public Safety. He has served in the New York justice system for over 30 years. He has a wide breadth of law experience, including Legal Aid counsel, Family Court, county prosecutor, and law clerk.  He has trained public safety officers, worked with victims of domestic violence, and prosecuted sexual predators and murderers.

Jim has a plan for implementing safety and accountability throughout Saratoga Springs. He wants to ensure that our uniformed services have the tools they need to do their jobs and improve community outreach within our community; work toward implementation of a Civilian Review Board that would make recommendations to the Commissioner; and support the creation of the east side EMS/Fire station.

Jim understands that the citizens of Saratoga Springs deserve to have a law professional as Commissioner.  “The time has come for experienced leadership in our Department of Public Safety. With three decades of experience in the justice system, I understand what it takes get our public safety services on the right track, build trust with residents, and keep neighborhoods safe.”
