Candidates for Oneida County Family Court Judge gathered at the Jewish Community Center in Utica last night to present their views and qualifications to the public in a forum hosted by the League of Women Voters.

Independent candidate Karen Stanislaus has worked in the Family Court for the last 15 years.

Democratic candidate Dawn Catera-Lupi says her experience as a prosecutor has shown her that issues she has seen can begin in Family Court.

Republican Julia Brouillette is currently the Oneida County Family Court Attorney Referee and she believes her experience gives her a head start on the other candidates.

All three candidates want to remind voters that election day is November 4, and they hope to see a large turnout.
