Herkimer, NY (WIBX) - Herkimer attorney Mary Iocovozzi has announced her candidacy for Herkimer County District Attorney.

Iocovozzi is a Frankfort native.

In 2010, she ran for Family Court Judge and was the first woman to run for a county-wide judgeship in the history of Herkimer County.

Iocovozzi says no single individual has a greater impact on the criminal justice system than the District Attorney and she'll be an aggressive and independent voice for justice.
