based on the demographics, uneven playing field, and the blind loyalty of the areas republicans I admire the spirit of Democrat Mary Iocovozzi! JB is most likely a hand picked puppet by the "powers that be" of the region. can anyone tell me the credentials of either candidate? it will probably be a landslide but she will get my vote based on my "blind loyalty to the democratic party" (haha)

Mary Iocovozzi has only been a Democrat for a little over a year. She has been handpicked by the third floor of the County Office Building where she has been appointed as an Assistant County Attorney while being a Republican for years. Now instead of being true to her party she changes to a Democrat. If she wanted to run for Family Court Judge she didnít have to change parties. I wonder if all of her views and opinions changes too.

John Brennan has been working for this position for many years and is the most qualified. He also seems to have the most integrity out of all of the three candidates. He is the type of guy that wonít tell you what you want to hear, he will tell you what you need to hear. Does he come across as arrogant and is he condescending to people? Sure but does that really matter, I am not looking to marry the guy. The question is will he be a good Judge.

Steve Getman is just in this race to be a spoiler. He is another appointed Republican and has been for years.

RecapÖ All three candidates to me are technically Republicans; they are all working in appointed positions and were appointed by Republicans. Still the Republican committee of over 100 people (all with their own brains) chose to endorse John Brennan. I tend to think that they all donít share one brain.

John Brennan is NOT qualified and who do you think "hand-picked" him. Listen, Brennan has NO experience practicing law in ANY court. He has never even set foot in a courtroom, other than as a Supreme Court Law Clerk. He only is doing this to get to the Supreme Court position when Daley leaves, or even County Court. He is an ego maniac who only talks with or associates with people he feels can help him. Do we really want another Aney pick running our Courts (like Daley). Come on people, you are smarter than that. Send this guy and his puppetmaster, Aney a message - we don't want to be told who is going to be our Family Court Judge.

Let's face it, this is all about a fight in the Republican party..probably at the root is Rob Malone who is encouraging Mary to run for Family Court Judge. That's because Bono and Peeseck are really picking at the republican party leadership..follow me here...Malone wants to hang onto his county attorney big $$ position so he needs to keep Bono and Peeseck happy or out he goes. Mary will do what Malone says and why wouldn't she..she gets big $$ and benefits on the county and can keep her boss happy...see how twisted they all are. I'll stay with brennan..he is out there campaigning for all to see. not the behind the scene things mary is doing. They are all lawyers..better or worse. I'm with the one who shows who he is and not the turncoat who switches parties like some people change shoes and then claims she is a democrat.

I tried to follow your logic but can't. If Mary wins, it has nothing to do with Rob Malone keeping his position as Cty Atty. He may or may not be backing her, but a judge becomes part of the Office of Court Administration's Unified Court System which is a state agency. The judge and his staff (sec and law clerk) are all paid by the State of NY; not the county. They don't answer to the legislature.
Their reports go to their respective District offices. Not the legislature. The legislature does not provide a budget; they do not provide furniture etc. The county does provide maintenance for which the county is reimbursed. Yes, I do have info that maybe the average person would not know, but then again I read and since I live in Herkimer County I made it my business to research. Go to any court website and learn. The state took over the trial courts in 1976. Once the local politicians get their candidate elected, the judges do not owe them anything, except their souls. Until they want to be elected again the majority of them will and can make the proper decisions by law.
Oh!, also the staff members of all the court offices are state employees as well, paid by the state and paid much more than county employees. Court Security is also a state agency and part of the Unified court system and paid almost double what the sheriff's department does. Ask them.
Get a clue. Mary changed parties to have at least a chance at a judgeship and she has backers. Getman is bucking the republicans (GFA) because he wants a chance at the judgeship ( he already is a Unified Court System support magistrate)and he has backers. Brennan is the one that GFA annointed and he is an employee of the Unified Court System and is paid by the state and probably makes more money than some judges. This info is all public record. Educate yourselves to find out who has power or who does not.
The internet is a font of info.

You're kidding right? working for htis position? He's a law clerk for Daley, that's it. This position would be nothing more than a stepping stone to Daley's position when he retires. Daley is no judge and has no qualifications to be one, not even traffic court. Both Getman and Iocovovvi both have plenty of court experience and either would be more suited.

You say Brennan is arrogant and condescending but it doesn't matter? You think those are great characteristics for someone that might be a judge? someone that should be impartial? Have you lost your mind?

No, he will not be a good judge, he will set family court back 20 years and do more to destroy families
