Oneida County Family Court Judge candidate Julia Brouillette has received the highest rating a candidate can get from the Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commission.

Broulliette was given a 'highly qualified' rating by the commission who reviewed her prior work, interviewed her colleagues and conducted a panel screening of the republican candidate before issuing the rating.

“I'm extremely proud of this news," Brouillette said. "This is an affirmation of the experience and qualifications directly relating to this position that I have obtained, the majority of which comes from over a decade of working in Family Court in various capacities. Over the next few months, I hope to convey this prestigious honor along with my deep background in Family Court to the voters of Oneida County.”

Broulliette will challenge Democrat Dawn Lupi for Oneida County Family Court Judge in November.
