The Canandaigua City Republican Committee has endorsed Meg Reston for Canandaigua City Court Judge. Reston is seeking the judicial seat that will become open with the retirement of City Judge Stephen Aronson at the end of this year. The election will be in early November.
Committee Chair Emily Palumbos said of the endorsement: “Meg Reston was the clear candidate with unmatched courtroom experience. She has tried hundreds of cases in civil and criminal proceedings, settled cases with opposing attorneys and worked with clients to solve real life problems. She also demonstrates a strong commitment to our community through her significant history of involvement in community organizations. She has the courtroom skills, the varied experience and the disposition of an excellent City Court Judge.”
“I want to express my sincere appreciation to the City of Canandaigua Republican Committee for its endorsement of my candidacy for City Court Judge,” said Reston. “I am grateful for the vote of confidence and support. This is an important position in our local court system and it requires a candidate with extensive courtroom experience.”
Trisha Turner, Chair of the Ontario County Republican Committee, congratulated Reston on her endorsement and added that her experience would make her an excellent judge.
“My legal experience has prepared me well for the position,” Reston wrote in a letter to the city committee. “I will strive to be a respected member of the judiciary. I will be a fair judge that is strongly interested in protecting the safety of this community. I will be well prepared and efficient in the management of the court and I will always work towards the ideal of handling every case with good judicial temperament.”
