AVON – Jeannie Michalski announced her candidacy for Town Justice.
She says that her experience as a former Monroe County Prosecutor and former contracting conflict defender for Livingston County would serve her well on the bench.
“I’ve been an attorney for 18 years,” said Michalski. “I’ve prosecuted in town courts and defended clients in both misdemeanor and felony matters. I don’t know if an attorney has ever been a Town Justice in Avon.”
Michalski is a councilwoman on the Avon Town Board and lives in the Village with her two children. She removed herself from the Avon Republican Committee and Livingston County Republican Executive Committee at the recommendation of the Livingston County Board of Elections and Elections Committee to eliminate any appearance of impropriety.
“I would like to serve my community,” said Michalski. “This community is wonderful. Very close knit.”
The run is for the seat of incumbent Justice Peter Piampiano.
