Erie County Republicans have endorsed Deanne Tripi for Family Court judge.

Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy said Tripi is a veteran of private, family law practice who also served as treasurer for Republican Stefan I. Mychajliw’s recent campaign for county comptroller. She will compete for one of two Family Court positions to be vacated by the retirements of Judges Paul Buchanan and Rose Bailey.

The county committee also endorsed incumbents Timothy B. Howard for sheriff and Michajliw for comptroller, as well as incumbent Democrat Barbara Howe for surrogate judge.
