Former Seneca Falls Police Chief Frederick Capozzi and former Waterloo Police Chief Doyle Marquart have endorsed former Seneca County District Attorney and current candidate for Seneca County Judge Donna Cathy.
The seat is up for election this year due to the retirement of Judge Dennis Bender. Cathy served as Seneca County District Attorney from 1994 to 2001, winning election twice as a Republican. In 1995, she founded and chaired the Seneca Against Violence Coalition,which at that time, was one of the only coalitions in New York State which addressed issues of elder abuse in the same vein as child abuse and domestic violence.
Assistant Seneca County Attorney David Ettman and Seneca County District Attorney Barry Porsch have also announced their bids for the judge’s job.
