A local attorney is announcing her candidacy for Oneida County Family Court Judge.

Jessica Reynolds-Amuso is a partner in the law offices of Reynolds-Amuso and Amuso in Clinton.

She's been practicing law for 26 years, with 16 of those years focused on Family Court.

“A smarter and faster Oneida County Family Court is essential to the well-being, safety and future success of our community. Better outcomes are achievable and we should demand them from our Family Court.  It is the other “Emergency Room,” that addresses critical issues when things go wrong and children are hurt or in danger." said Reynolds-Amuso.

The judge's seat will be up for election in November.
