“So while I believe it's very important to have legal experience for the role of Village Justice, which I believe that I have, I also place great value on strength of character and commitment to our community. I will always strive for both justice and compassion when dealing with the cases in front of me. I will always strive to be a role model for the children in our community. I feel it is my duty as the Village Judge to ensure that the residents of the Village of Fayetteville feel confident that justice is being served when I am on the bench. As Village Justice, I will always be an advocate for the best quality of life possible for the people in our Village.”
In addition to working a acting village justice, Danaher has been a partner in Shulman, Curtin & Grundner, P.C., Attorneys at Law since 1996.

He is a member of Immaculate Conception Church, the Greater Manlius Chamber of Business and is a former member of the Fayetteville-Manlius Foundation Board of Trustees.

“I was raised here and we raised our family here,” said Jim Hughes, a longtime village resident. “This is our home and I believe I can contribute to our quality of life by serving as our village judge. Judge Miller did so with distinction and I hope that I can do the same.”
