NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. - It was a packed house Friday night at Daniele's Banquet in New Hartford to celebrate International Women's Day and the Bosnian community.

Mayor Palmieri and other elected officials showed up to support the women in the community.

Judge Bernedette Clark says she is happy to see so many people coming together to celebrate.

"Our community is just such a melting pot," Clark said. "We have so many different cultures coming into Oneida County and I just think it’s amazing."

Judge Clark has been a judge for 19 years, and she says women, like herself, have come a long way.

"As a supreme court justice, when I started out in politics, I was the first woman, first assistant district attorney, and then the first woman family court judge and now I’m the first woman supreme court justice from Oneida county," Clark said. "So I feel like my career has been about breaking the glass ceiling and pushing forward. We've come a long way and there’s still places to go but we came a long way."

Judge Clark offered some advice that she says has helped her get where she wanted to be in life.

"Don’t ever, ever let anyone tell you cannot do anything, that’s been my mantra from day one," Clark said. "You can be anything you want to be and I think that's kind of the message I like to give to these women tonight."
