Walsh deemed qualified

TROY - Beth Walsh, a candidate for Rensselaer County Family Court Judge, was recently deemed "qualified" by the Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commission.
The 15-member commission rates judicial candidates in the Third Judicial District as either "qualified" or "unqualified" to sit as a judge.
“It’s an honor to be rated ‘qualified’ by this respected nonpartisan panel," said Walsh. "The commission’s work helps voters determine whether judicial candidates have the ability to effectively serve on the bench, and I’m pleased that my close to two decades of work in Family Court met their high standards.”
The commission examines candidates for a series of qualifications, including their professional ability, integrity, courtroom management, reputation for fairness and temperament. The panel also is known to interview attorneys and supervising judges about a candidate’s views and work performance.
“To have my Family Court experience examined and deemed worthy of the commission’s highest rating is very satisfying,” said Walsh, whose name will be on the ballot in next month’s Democratic and Work Families Party primaries.
