Dedicated to the ideals of justice and hard work, Ron Castorina has fearlessly fought for Staten Island as an Attorney, Commissioner of the NYC Board of Elections and as a Lieutenant in the New York Guard Army Division. Ron successfully took on City Hall for our kids when the City tried to take school buses away from our 7th and 8th graders. He served as counsel to former Council member Ignizio on the South Shore where he worked on issues such as Property Tax relief, land use, transportation and a host of other local issues.
A true fighter for Staten Island, Ron went to the New York City Board of Elections and fought against nepotism, and helped save the City millions of dollars with innovative cost saving initiatives. The decisive leadership of this life-long Republican helped to create the right balance at the Board when he helped bring political balance to Executive Management staff. He then, once again went to bat for Staten Islanders when he single-handedly took on the Governorís office in Federal Court to see to it that we had a Representative in Congress.
Ron is a timeless fighter for whatís right, and knows no boundaries when it comes to obtaining a just result to a difficult problem. Truly dedicated to serving his community, Ron comes from a long line of dedicated civil servants including his dad who retired from the FDNY, and grandfathers on both sides of his family who served the NYPD and NYCTA proudly and with distinction.
Ron is a graduate of St. Francis College and of The State University at Buffalo School of Law, and has been a local small business owner in the private practice of law for 10 years. Prior to opening his law practice, served as a law clerk to a Justices of the Supreme Court and a Judge of the Criminal Court. Ron has the skills and talent needed to get things done.
Ron resides in Richmond Valley and maintains his law offices in Eltingville.
