Oneida County Assistant District Attorney Rob Bauer is running for Oneida County Court Judge.

Bauer announced his candidacy before family, friends and supporters at Aqua Vino Restaurant in Utica.

The 44-year old Bauer has worked in the D-A's Office for over 11 years.

The seat is up for election this fall due to the pending retirement of Judge Barry Donalty.

Former District Attorney and Congressman Michael Arcuri is also running for the judge's seat.
