In the News

3 votes separate candidates in two races

As featured in JP Election Brief: Highlights of the 2012 judicial elections on November 15, 2012

Candidates competing for the New York Town and Village Courts do not receive particularly high vote totals, since their jurisdiction is limited by a small area. In this year's election, the East Rochester Town Court race in Monroe County and the Olean Town Court in Cattaraugus County may have the distinction of being the closest races yet.

In Monroe County, Dennis J. Greco has 1,196 votes, while David P. Bonacchi has 1,193. In Cattaraugus County, Sherry L. Lemon has 392 votes, while Thomas G. Churakos, Sr. has 389. That's a difference of just three votes! We have labeled these races as too close to call, and will have to wait for the official canvass of votes 15 days after the election to learn the results.

New York races set and announced

As featured in JP Election Brief: Attack ads and voter education on October 25, 2012.

Yesterday, the New York Courts finally released their Voter Guide, revealing races across the state and providing profiles on some judicial candidates. There will be races for all trial courts this year, the Supreme Courts, NYC Civil Court, City Courts, Surrogates' Courts, County Courts, District Courts, Family Courts, and Town and Village Courts. For the Supreme Courts, the state's court of general jurisdiction, there are 30 races, only one of which is uncontested.

One interesting race is for three seats on the 9th Judicial District Supreme Court. Seven candidates competed for three seats. One of those candidates is Rory Lancman, who has served in the New York State Assembly since 2007 and was defeated in the primaries. Lancman was nominated by the Working Families Party in this year's 9th Judicial District race but has a lot of interest surrounding him and his future political priorities. Though he's technically in the race, in an article he expressed his interest in maintaining his law practice before considering long term plans.[1]
