Jonathan R. Sennett officially enters Ulster County D.A. race

I had the privilege of attending Jonathan Sennett's campaign kick off today at The Village Tea Room in New Paltz. It was a great turn out and I got to meet Jon and his lovely family. I was very impressed; not only is Mr. Sennett extremely intelligent and down to earth, he is also very qualified. Mr. Sennett currently has his own law firm in Ulster County and was a former A.D.A. in the Bronx, he has tried cases from gun possession to homicide. He has experience in all aspects of law and would make a great District Attorney. Jonathan Sennett is someone to watch out for and if I were Don Williams I would be very worried. I will have frequent updates on this race so stay tuned.

The following is an excerpt from Mr. Sennett's bio :

Born and bred in New York State, Jonathan R. Sennett received his Bachelor's Degree, cum laude, from the University of Maryland at College Park and his law degree from Brooklyn Law School. He began his career as an attorney in the Office of the Bronx County District Attorney in January 1994. During his first two years, he led a team of ten assistant district attorneys each handling nearly one hundred misdemeanor cases at all times. He spent the next twelve months conducting hundreds of grand jury investigations in cases ranging from gun possession to homicide. For the following two and one-half years, Sennett tried over thirty violent felony cases before over ten different judges. Throughout his tenure as a prosecutor, he maintained a reputation as hard hitting yet fair, knowledgeable on the law, practical in his approach to the system and ever vigilant in his pursuit of justice.

In June, 1999, shortly after the birth of his first child he left the District Attorney’s Office to enter private practice, where he represented terminally ill clients in asbestos products liability cases in state and federal courts from Massachusetts to Texas. In 2000, he and his family moved to New Paltz and he relocated his practice to the Hudson Valley in 2002.

Since 2002, Jonathan R. Sennett has been trying cases in nearly every level of trial court in Ulster and neighboring counties - including Justice Court, Family Court, County Court and Supreme Court. He has also argued cases before the Supreme Court, Appellate Division for the Third Department, located in Albany.

Jonathan has been married for over ten years to Mari Ann Connolly Sennett, herself a former Bronx County Assistant District Attorney. They live with their two young daughters, Shaena and Aedan, in New Paltz, where he has served a term as a member of the Town of New Paltz Environmental Conservation Commission (2003-2005) and remains committed to helping the various town youth athletic programs by coaching and sponsoring teams.
