Paul Battisti is the Republican and Conservative candidate for Broome County District Attorney in the 2023 election.
“I’m running for District Attorney because Broome County is less safe than it was four years ago, and that is simply unacceptable,” said Battisti. “There is no debate that our families are less safe; crime rates are up, criminal cases aren’t being effectively prosecuted, families feel less safe and fentanyl is killing our young people. It has to stop.”
“We need to get back to law and order to make our streets safe again. I’m firmly and adamantly opposed to Defunding The Police and the extreme distance the State Legislature went with Bail Reform and Discovery Reform. As Broome County’s new District Attorney, I won’t be afraid to tell Albany and Washington that they’re wrong on these policies. While opposed to these drastic legislative changes, we must implement systems to ensure they are being followed so that offenders are held accountable and our community is protected and safe,” added Battisti.
Battisti is a successful private practice attorney with a focus on criminal defense work as well as representing Law Enforcement agencies throughout Broome County. Over nearly two decades as an attorney, he has handled thousands of cases in Federal, State, County and Municipal courtrooms across New York.
Beyond his professional qualifications, Battisti has given back to our community by volunteering his time as a youth and high school sports coach and as a board member of the Twin Tiers Honor Flight, Police Athletic League, Addiction Center of Broome County, Broome County Criminal Justice Advisory Board, Broome County Treatment Court Team, Broome County Bar Association (Past President), Broome County Library Foundation, and Lourdes Hospital Foundation, among others.
Battisti, 44, is a graduate of Seton Catholic Central High School, Siena College and Thomas Jefferson School of Law School. He was born and raised in Broome County and lives with his wife, Christine, and their five children in Kirkwood.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 7, 2023. Early Voting and Absentee Voting will be available for the election.
