|Assistant Clerk Magistrate Robert J. Dello Russo Officially Announces His Candidacy For Clerk of Superior Court (Criminal Business) - Suffolk County
Suffolk County Superior Court Assistant Clerk Magistrate Robert Dello Russo has announced his intention to seek election as Criminal Clerk of the Suffolk County Superior Court. “It is my hope to continue the line of professional administrators who oversee the administration of justice in Suffolk Superior Court,” said Dello Russo in announcing his candidacy for the Clerk’s post. “This important position is not one to be held by career politicians who might place their own personal ambitions and agendas before the needs of the court, he said”. Although the Clerk is elected, politics has no role in the Clerk’s office. I’m prepared to put my two decades of organizational and managerial experience to use on behalf of those who seek and deserve justice in our Superior Court.”
With ten active court sessions daily, the Suffolk County division was the most active in the state during Fiscal Year 2005. The court’s top administrative position was vacated late last year upon the departure of Clerk John Nucci, and the election of a successor will
take place this fall.
Dello Russo has more than seven years of hands-on experience as Superior Court Assistant Clerk Magistrate, as well as more than a decade spent as a top advisor to Legislative Leadership, the House Criminal Justice Committee and the House Committee on the Judiciary. Dello Russo state that he is very proud and privileged to contribute to The Safe Roads Act, presumptive sentencing, and court reform legislation that restructured the entire court system during his tenure as a top advisor in the Legislature.
Dello Russo has drawn on his experience and recently implemented in the Superior Court a new case tracking system. Dello Russo states that “the system works to ensure the swift, unimpeded progress of cases through our legal system”.
Dello Russo is also proud of his many years of volunteer service on behalf of families and senior citizens in the local community. He specifically cites two decades as chairman of the North End/West End Service Center as among the most gratifying: “We’ve always kept the focus on senior citizens, and have made a specific effort to reach out to those who might fall through the cracks because they’re not in public housing,” he explained. “We secured funding, established a drop-in center and set up fuel assistance and other programs to help the elderly, and I’m proud to remain a member of the board after more than twenty years.” Dello Russo is also a longtime member of the Order Sons of Italy and Knights of Columbus.
A life-long resident of Boston’s North End, Dello Russo formerly owned and operated the Dello Russo and Sons Funeral Home. He has been happily married for thirty-five years to his wife, Maria. They have three grown children.
As no Republican candidate has announced an intention to seek the clerk’s post, it is likely that the race will be decided in the Democratic primary on Primary Election Day – Tuesday, September 19th, 2006. “I urge registered voters in Suffolk County to turn out at the polls and vote on Election Day,” concluded Dello Russo.
