Another candidate has entered the race for Oneida County Family Court Judge.

Attorney Julie Giruzzi-Mosca announced her candidacy for judge at the Hotel Utica on Tuesday.

Giruzzi-Mosca has been a Family Court lawyer for 17 years.

"Seventeen years of arguing law in a courtroom and seventeen years of running my own private practice have shown me that Family Court is the most important court," said Giruzzi-Mosca.  "No court hears more cases or affects more lives. I am running because our most important court needs the most experienced and tested judge."

Local attorneys Paul Deep and Jason Flemma are also looking to replace Judge Joan Shkane, who is retiring.

Due to the timing of Shkane's announcement, there will be no primary.  The parties will announce their endorsements in September and the election will be held on November 7th.
