Posted 13 October 2017 at 10:25 pm


We at the Conservative Party Committee are thrilled to offer our endorsement to such an exquisite candidate and to give the voters of all political affiliations a choice in the race for Orleans County Court Judge, Tonia Ettinger.

She was born and raised in Orleans County. A home town girl.  A Medina High School graduate. Holds an undergraduate degree from SUNY Geneseo. A law degree from University at Buffalo School of Law. She was a former Vice President and later the President of the Orleans County Bar Association.

Tonia has been practicing law for over a decade. Tonia has spent 8 years at The Legal Aid Society protecting the most vulnerable population – our children. Her support and encouragement have helped many overcome life’s obstacles. Tonia has the experience and dedication. Completely qualified with the correct temperament to serve as Judge in all formats. Tonia is honest, ethical and driven. Clearly the best choice to begin a new era. A fresh start. A cleansing for Orleans County.

A few years back the establishment in Orleans County had a hand-picked candidate for Sheriff to continue on with the status quo. One thing they didn’t count on was that the people had had enough of that. The people elected Sheriff Randy Bower. The taxpayers, our great Sheriff’s Department and the employees who work there are better off for it. Our entire County is better off for it. Now with the Honorable Judge Punch vacating his seat the establishment has once again hand-picked who they want to continue the status quo. I have to ask the voting public. Are you happy with the way Orleans County has been run for all the decades?

We at the Conservative committee are offering you a choice like we did in the Sheriff’s election. We know most Republican voters consider themselves conservative. That is why we respectfully ask for you to cast your vote for Tonia Ettinger on the Conservative line at the ballot box on November 7th. We ask all voters from all political affiliations to come out in record numbers. This is for the Orleans County Court Judge. A 10 year term. It matters who holds that seat.

If you would like to know more about Tonia Ettinger and all the Conservative-endorsed candidates, there will be a meet and greet on Sunday, October 22,  and Sunday, November 5, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Hoag Library in Albion.

Tonia and the rest of the candidates will be there to answer your questions. Educate yourself. Ask questions. Know who you are voting for. The people you elect at the local level have the most effect on your life and your wallet.
