Giordano discusses career at meeting

Wednesday, December 12, 2018 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

In an address at the Oct. 24 meeting of the Middle Eastern Counties Association of Boroughs, Emil Giordano reported his leaving his seat on the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas was to bring his experience to the people.

Giordano said he thought long and hard of what he wanted to do moving forward in his career and decided he wanted to return to being a private attorney to be “close to the people.”

He is pursuing his interest in becoming an arbitrator. Giordano said it is fulfilling to resolve such issues and that taking civil matters to court can be costly for litigants. He mentioned having such disputes handled by an arbitrator is less expensive and could be resolved in a more timely matter.

He commended the mayors and council members at the MECAB meeting, held at the Bath Borough Office, 121 S. Walnut St. He said borough government is close to the people. Giordano said he is receptive to providing his knowledge without a fee if called on by a borough. Giordano also maintains a private law practice.

In addition to their individual reports, the attendees were also given a tour of Bath’s new borough hall building.

Among the boroughs represented at the meeting were Northampton, Bath, Catasauqua, Coplay, Tatamy, Stroudsburg, Wilson, Freemansburg and others.
