Long Island Business News names Judge Richard Horowitz to its “Around 50 Award” list of influential Long Islanders.

For the past seven years I have had the privilege of serving as a District Court Judge in Suffolk County. It has been the experience of a lifetime. This year I was honored to be appointed by the Chief Administrative Judge of the State of New York as the Supervising Judge of the District Court of Suffolk County.  I am responsible for the day-to-day operation of a court system that handles civil and criminal cases, in six courthouses, which are adjudicated by twenty-four judges, who collectively serve a community of approximately one million citizens.  Aside from my administrative responsibilities, I am also the Presiding Judge in the Drug Treatment Court, the Mental Health Court and our newly developed Human Trafficking Court.


I hope to continue serving my community as your Supervising Judge for many years to come.  I am asking for your support on November 5th in the upcoming election. You deserve a Judge who is honest, fair and decisive. The Judge you elect should have the experience, the integrity, the temperament and the confidence to make difficult decisions. I believe I possess all of those qualities. I am committed to making our court system work for the People of Suffolk County.


Thank you for your support and confidence in my abilities.
