Jordan picks local man for office

A Granville graduate has been selected to join Washington County District Attorney-elect Tony Jordan as an assistant.

Brandon Rathbun will join Jordan when he takes over the office at the beginning of January. The Granville native graduated earlier this year from Albany Law School and also passed the state bar exam.

Despite Rathbun’s only recently graduating from college, Jordan explained that it’s important to have people of different backgrounds in a law office.

“With every law office you need a variety of skill sets and skill levels of attorneys,” he said, also mentioning the financial realities of the budget. He said he was impressed with Rathbun’s experience.

“What Brandon brought to the table is an exceptional resume for someone who just graduated from law school,” Jordan said. He said Rathbun brings both relevant experience from college and also practical experience from his family’s business, Rathbun’s Maple Sugar House.

He said that combination as well as a willingness to work hard sets Rathbun apart.

“And he observes different offices and exhibits an appreciation for how things are done elsewhere,” Jordan said.

In addition to Rathbun, Jordan chose to keep three-year veteran of the District Attorney’s office Devin Anderson, and he also selected Sara Fischer, of Salem and Christian Morris, of Easton. He is also keeping Paul Frettoloso, senior investigator.
