Erie County Family Court Judge Margaret O. Szczur has been endorsed for re-election by the executive committee of the Erie County Democratic Committee.
Szczur was first elected in 1993 and was instrumental in the creation of Family Treatment Court, the committee said.
“She is well regarded by the bar and a credit to the bench,” said county Democratic Chairman Jeremy Zellner. “As a Family Court Judge she has worked hard on behalf of our community for over two decades.”
Szczur is seeking a 10-year term.
The court has jurisdiction over matters concerning juvenile delinquency, paternity, termination of parental rights and child protection.
