Assistant Seneca County Attorney David Ettman has announced he’s running to replace retiring Dennis Bender as Seneca County Court Judge.
In a statement, Ettman cites more than 30 years of courtroom experience, both as County Attorney and in private practice, as a big reason for his candidacy.
The 60-year-old Varick resident further explains why he decided to run:
“Our Seneca County community faces new challenges every day. Violence in our schools and our homes, and the tragedy of drugs on families and especially children. These are issues that our Courts, in conjunction with law enforcement, social services agencies, local government, and the community must confront and adapt to seek real and positive changes. I can bring the experience, temperament and knowledge to the County Courts to develop better answers and solutions as part of the community team to keep Seneca County strong and vibrant, and a place to proudly call our home, now and in the future”
