You Be The Judge


My name is Claudia Andreassen, I am a parent, a grandparent, a wife, a sister, an aunt, a niece and a daughter.  I am also a public servant.  I am seeking a third four-year term as Saugerties Town Justice. I was first appointed Town Justice in 2012 by the Town Board then elected in two subsequent campaigns.  I seek your support for a third term.


My goal is Justice for all, tempered with objectivity and an understanding of what causes people to commit crimes in the first place. Most importantly I must remind myself everyday that judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are. I take my job very seriously and as your Town Justice I will remain vigilant in that pursuit.




I am proud to have received the following endorsement from former Saugerties Town Supervisor Jim Griffis (R):   “Claudia is a great and fair Judge”



98.1 Will Baylies’s interview with Saugerties Town Justice Claudia Andreassen at the kickoff of her 2020 re-election campaign this March.  Some interesting insights into the functions of a small town court and the impact it has on people’s lives as well as a look at the bigger picture of the criminal justice system and proposed reforms overall.
