  • Endorsements: Qualified and Commended by the Central New York Women's Bar Assoc.; Recommended as Qualified by the Onondaga County Bar Assoc.; Endorsed by the Veteran's Party; Endorsed by the Greater Syracuse Labor Council; Judicial and Bar Associations: Board Member NYS Chapter National Assoc. of Women Judges; Third VP NYS Assoc. of City Court Judges; past Officer and Board Member WBASNY and CNYWBA; Past Board Member, Onondaga County Bar Assoc. A judge must follow the law and be fair and impartial to all parties who come before the court. I believe that a judge also must have a real concern for those parties, a sense of fairness and compassion. A native of Syracuse, I believe that I have a special knowledge of this community and a sense of justice and fairness which qualify me to continue as a City Court judge.
