Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • It is truly an honor to serve as judge in my life-long home of Cayuga County. I am the elected Surrogate, and also serve as Acting County Judge, Acting Family Court Judge, and Acting Supreme Court Justice. I find the work of a multi-bench judge to be challenging and rewarding, and I strive to be fair, consistent, and just in my dealings with attorneys, litigants, jurors, staff, and court-related personnel. I am completing my first term as Surrogate, and am running unopposed for a second term. I have lived in Auburn my entire life (except for college and law school), have been married 33 years, and have three adult children. Prior to being elected judge, I was an attorney in private practice in Auburn for 21 years, and also served as an Auburn City Councilor. I currently serve on several local boards– the YMCA-WEIU, Auburn Indians Pop Warner, and the Session of Westminster Presbyterian Church– and am the current president of the Cayuga County Bar Association
