Congressman Richard Hanna announced this week his endorsement of Republican Patrick O’Sullivan for Madison County Court Judge. O’Sullivan is also running on the Independence and Reform Party lines. He earned the Republican line after winning the Primary Election last month.
“Judge O’Sullivan has the best combination of experience to handle the difficult cases that come before the Madison County Court,” said Congressman Hanna. “Patrick’s 14 years of judicial experience, along with his time as a defense attorney, prosecuting attorney and educator, give him an unmatched skillset that will serve the citizens of our community well.”
“It’s an honor to receive Congressman Hanna’s support,” said O’Sullivan. “He understands that our next Madison County Judge will have an important and dramatic effect on the lives of citizens in Madison County. We need to ensure the best-qualified and most experienced candidate serves in this critical role. I’m respectfully asking the voters to entrust me with that duty on November 3rd.”
O’Sullivan has been town judge in Nelson for 10 years, and village judge in Cazenovia for the past four years. For 22 years, he has served as a trial attorney, litigating civil and criminal matters across all of Upstate New York. He also serves as an adjunct professor of law at the Syracuse University College of Law and in the Criminal Justice Department at Morrisville State College.
“My wife of 27 years, Susan, and I have made Madison County our home and raised our three children here because we love this community,” O’Sullivan said. “I want to do my part to keep it a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. That’s why I’m running for Madison County Judge.”
O’Sullivan is a graduate of the Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School (Juris Doctor), Iona College (Master of Science) and Daemen College (Bachelor of Science). He and his wife, Susan, live in Nelson with their three children, Jacqueline, Hannah and Jake.
