Cortland resident and attorney Mark Masler announced this weekend that he will make a run for the State Supreme Court.
He made the announcement Saturday (February 23) from the Cortland Elks Lodge that he will officially join the race for the 6th judicial district.
Masler currently serves as Attorney and Principal Law Clerk to retiring Supreme Court Justice Phillip Rumsey.
In making the case for his candidacy, Masler said, “My experience of working closely with Justice Rumsey for over 10 years as his Attorney and Principal Law Clerk is the best preparation to succeed him. I have gained knowledge of the entire range of subjects considered by the Supreme Court by assisting him with all aspects of the work of the court, including the conduct of jury trials and by drafting over 900 decisions.”
The 6th Judicial District includes Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Madison, Otsego, Schuyler, Tioga and Tompkins Counties.
