Yorktown unveiled a portrait honoring a longtime, well-respected town justice on Monday.
The painting of the late Andrew W. Tully Jr. will hang in a place of honor in the main courtroom of the Yorktown Justice Court.
Tully served as a town justice from 1976 until 1990. Tully died in Sleepy Hollow in 2016 at the age of 75.
A Yorktown resident for more than 40 years, Tully worked with many local organizations and civic groups, including the Irish American Social Club of Northern Westchester, the Yorktown Athletic Club, the Yorktown Youth Soccer Club, and the Taconic Road Runners, among others. Besides his work as a town justice, Tully dedicated most of his law career to representing people injured in construction accidents and other negligence-related incidents.
The portrait was created by former Somers resident and artist Nicholas Valerio.
