Race for the Supreme Court Third Judicial District

By Thomas J. Carr

Lately it seems like the whole country is focused on the Presidential election – studying the debates, the political ads and the candidates’ platforms. Here in the Capital District, we’ve been having a heated political race of our own – one for a seat on the New York State Supreme Court Third Judicial District.

We wanted to get the facts directly from the candidates themselves, so we had both Judge Patrick McGrath and Judge Anthony Carpinello on our show tonight. Helping me sort through their policies was Albany criminal defense attorney Tom Carr of Tully Rinckey PLLC.

In my opinion, in order to make an informed decision on Election Day, you must do your homework. Knowing where each candidate stands on the important issues is crucial. I hope that tonight’s show helped listeners and voters in the area make up their mind on which Judge they want to see work for them in the Supreme Court.

Experience seems to be a big factor in this race and was mentioned by both candidates. McGrath has 23 years of experience on the bench, presiding over criminal and civil cases, while Carpinello, who has been in private practice for over 20 years, has spent 12 years serving as a judge in the Appellate Court division. To hear more about what Judges McGrath and Carpinello had to say regarding why they deserve your vote, you can listen to our podcast found here.

Or, if you have any questions for Tom Carr or one of our other experienced attorneys, call us at 518-218-7100 or visit our website at www.tullylegal.com.
