City Court Judge Candidates Talk Platforms at Forum

Print More


In hopes of becoming Ithaca’s next city court judge, three candidates — Kristine Shaw J.D. ’01, Rick Wallace and Seth Peacock J.D. ’01 — spoke at a public forum Wednesday night, discussing topics such as community connection and drug-related crime.

The forum was the last in a series of debates for the candidates, who are all on the ballot for the Democratic primary on Sept. 9. The three are competing to fill one of the two positions for city court judge in Ithaca. The other position is occupied by current judge Scott Miller.

Peacock is currently serving as interim city court judge after the June resignation of Judge Judith Rossiter. Peacock was appointed by Mayor Svante Myrick to fill the rest of Rossiter’s term, ending Dec. 31.
