State Senator John DeFrancisco has appointed Judge John Brunetti as his new Legislative Counsel. He previously served as Counsel to Senator DeFrancisco from 1993-1995.
Judge Brunetti has been a Judge and Acting Supreme Court Justice for Onondaga County for more than 20 years and previously served as First Deputy District Attorney for Onondaga County and as Assistant United States Attorney for the Northern District of New York. He retired on October 30 as the longest-serving felony court judge in Syracuse.
In a statement, Sen. DeFrancisco said, “I am excited that Judge John Brunetti will be a part of our team again. He first served as Legislative Counsel to me when I was new to the State Senate. His background and expertise in law will be a great benefit to me, my staff and the constituents we serve.”
