NY Supreme Court likely to stay union-friendly

Nov. 6th is more than just another off-year election. Voters will have the unique opportunity to vote for three candidates to fill open seats for the New York State Supreme Court in the 6th Judicial District.

A review by the Broome County Bar Association has given three candidates the rating of "highly qualified." These candidates are Phillip R. Rumsey, a sitting Supreme Court judge in Cortland County; Michael V. Coccoma, an acting Supreme Court judge in Otsego County; and Richard W. Rich, the public advocate in Chemung County.

I am very fortunate to know all three candidates and how hard they worked to get their message out to all 10 counties that form the 6th Judicial District. In addition, Judge Rumsey and Judge Coccoma have been endorsed by the CSEA Local 1000 Region 5 AFSCME AFL/CIO, and Richard W. Rich has received the endorsement of the Chemung-Schuyler Labor Assembly.

On Election Day, Nov. 6th, please vote for Judge Phillip R. Rumsey, Judge Michael V. Coccoma and public advocate Richard W. Rich for New York State Supreme Court.

Joe Coletta, Elmira
