It’s rare to make history in an already historical place, but this weekend Judge-elect Karle will do so.
On Saturday Kitty Karle takes the oath of Ontario County Judge, becoming the first woman elected to the position in the courthouse where Susan B. Anthony was tried.
“She fought so hard for my right to be able to vote, run for office, and to ultimately win,” said Karle.
Karle won the election through relentless determination, having previously lost the 2017 county District Attorney race to James Ritts.
After Karle’s hard-fought 2018 Republican primary victory over Edward Russ Kenyon, the Democrats did not present a candidate and Karle ran unopposed in this past November’s election. Ritts, her one-time political adversary, will now be rising in recognition of Judge Karle every time she enters the courtroom.
