Attorney Karen J. Stanislaus is our best choice to fill the vacancy left by the Hon. James R. Griffith’s retirement, for Oneida County Family Court Judge.
While etiquette and ethics bars judges from endorsing candidates, staff choice speaks volumes and Ms. Stanislaus served as principal court attorney to Griffith in the Rome and Utica Family Court system. While she’s grateful for being mentored and guided with the time spent in Family Court by Judge Griffith, she is currently an appointed court attorney referee serving Onondaga County Family Court, where she is assigned to hear, decide and issue orders in cases where she reports her recommendation to a Family Court judge.
Ms. Stanislaus’s breadth of experience is unrivaled in this election. Not only is she presently working within the framework of the Family Court system; she has represented clients in family court before judges as an attorney at Felt Evans in Clinton.
Attorney Stanislaus has two fundamental promises: She will decide cases fairly and impartially, free of political influence or intimidation; And regardless of her personal view- she will follow the law because a judge must be fair to All parties involved in cases before the bench.
“KAREN FOR KIDS” is just that. Please vote for Karen Stanislaus as the next Oneida County Family Court judge on Nov. 2. Early voting begins Oct. 23.
