I grew up in Broome County, my family has been here for four generations.

When I graduated from law school, I returned home to practice law.

My mentor, Judge Mathews, hired me in the District Attorney's Office.

I worked there thirteen years, fighting crime in Broome County.

Judge Mathews hired me, promoted me, believed in me and swore me in when I became a City Court Judge eleven years ago.

I was the first woman ever elected to Binghamton City Court as a Judge.

For five years I have been an Acting County Court Judge.

I founded the Domestic Violence Court, one of the three best practices courts in the State of New York.

I teach other judges all over the state and my materials on domestic violence and orders of protection are part of the statewide curriculum to teach my fellow judges.

I have been a public servant for twenty-four years.

Broome County Bar Association - Highly Qualified.

I am endorsed by the:

• New York State Police Officer's Association and Patrol Division.

• Broome County Sheriff's Department Officer's Association

• New York State Officer's Association, Inc.

• Professional Employee's Federation

• Congressman Maurice Hinchey

• Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, among others.

I would be grateful for your vote November 6th.
