Judge Elizabeth Burns has picked up two endorsements for her campaign for Supreme Court Justice, for the 6th Judicial District. She’s currently serving as the Cortland City Court Judge.
One of those endorsing Burns is Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton. In a letter endorsing Burns, Lifton states, “Judge Burns has a reputation for being fair, smart, and respectful to litigants. She has more experience as a judge than all of the other candidates combined. Judge Burns is the most qualified candidate to be our next Supreme Court Justice, and I am proud to endorse her. I encourage everyone to give her their full support.”
Lifton is a Democratic member of the New York State Assembly for District 125, which includes Tompkins County, and the City of Cortland and towns of Cortlandville and Virgil.
And retired Binghamton City Court Judge, Honorable Mary Anne Lehmann, has also endorsed Judge Elizabeth Burns.
Burns is currently Cortland City Court Judge, Drug Treatment Court Judge and also Acting County Court Judge for drug court felonies in Cortland County.
