Herkimer County Family Court Judge


LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - Tuesday is Primary Day in New York State, and on Monday, all three candidates vying for the position of Herkimer County Family Court Judge caught up with voters at the Universalist Church in Little Falls.

Mary Iocovozzi, Stephen Getman, and John Brennan are all asking for the support of Herkimer County voters for their support.

This is the first time in 25-years there has been no incumbent running for the ten-year term seat. Sitting Judge Henry LaRaia has reached the mandatory retirement age of 70.

S this year, there will be a fresh face on the bench.

"I've been a lawyer for 25 years," said Brennan. "I can serve the entire 10 year term and that is what I want to do. I have the experience, having worked in the public system and family court system. I've handled thousands upon thousands of family law matters."

"I've practiced family law or been involved with family law for more than 30 years.," Getman said. "Both as a private attorney representing mothers fathers and children, and for the last 11 years as a family court magistrate."

"I've had 26 years of practice in the family court system, representing moms, dads, kids, grandparents," Iocovozzi said. "I've handled all kinds of family court matters, everything a family court judge would consider and what would be before a family court judge."

All three candidates are vying for the Republican and Conservative lines. No matter the Primary outcome, Iocovozzi will be on the Democratic line on November 2.
