Buffalo City Court Judge E. Jeannette Ogden is seeking nominations of her candidacy for New York state Supreme Court.
On Nov. 4, voters in the 8th judicial district will have the opportunity to elect five judges to the NYS Supreme Court. Political parties will select their Supreme Court candidates through the Judicial Convention process, rather than by direct primary election. The Judicial Convention is composed of delegates elected by voters of the same party in a September delegate primary. The party's nomination of candidates is made at the Judicial Convention, which takes place approximately two weeks after the September primary election.
Ogden has 30 years of legal experience, almost 20 years of judicial experience and over 30 years of community service.
Ogden was appointed to the Buffalo City Court in June 1995 and twice elected thereafter in 1995 and 2005. She was appointed Acting Erie County Court Judge in 2001 and Acting Family Court Judge in 2003. She has handled thousands of cases since her appointment to the bench and gained a reputation of being a firm, but fair judge. Prior to her appointment to the bench Ogden practiced civil and criminal law in state Supreme Court. She is also an adjunct instructor at UB Law School and Daemen College.
The 8th judicial district is comprised of Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming counties. In view of the size of the judicial district and the short period of time between the judicial convention and the general election, Ogden is announcing her intention to engage in "Friend Raising" to gain exposure to the electorate and preparation for the election.
