On Wednesday, May, 21st, the Westchester Democratic County Committee met at the Crown Plaza Hotel and chose their candidates for Westchester County Family Court Judge and Westchester County, County Court Judge. Both candidates will be on the ballot in November, 2014.
Scarsdale Acting Justice Arlene Katz was nominated for Family Court Judge. Judge Katz has been a practitioner in the Family Court for over 20 years and has been the part time Scarsdale Village Justice for nineteen years. Arlene understands the needs of children and families and does her best to ensure that they get the best representation possible. This is the type of person we want sitting on the Family Court bench.
Judge Katz has complete control of her court and makes sure defendants understand their rights. If they do not, she takes the time to explain before proceeding on. She cares about the people who come before her and tries to make them feel that they will be heard and get a fair trial. Judge Arlene Katz lives in Scarsdale, is married and has two children who have gone through the Scarsdale School system.
Croton-On-Hudson Acting Village Court Judge Anne Minihan was nominated for Westchester County, County Court Judge. She is also the Principal Law Clerk to J. Emmett Murphy, Supreme Court. Ann has worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Westchester County where she prosecuted criminals to the fullest extent of the law. Judge Minihan has presided over thousands of criminal, vehicular, civil and landlord/tenant matters. Judge Anne Minihan is married and has two children.
