CORNING, NY – Matthew McCarthy, acting Steuben County Judge and Corning City Judge, who is running for Steuben County Court Judge, was named “highly qualified” by the independent judicial election qualification commission. McCarthy is opposing Bath Village Justice and Canisteo Attorney Chauncey Watches, in the primary on Thursday September 13. “I welcomed the opportunity to have my work experience extensively reviewed by those who depend on the legal system for their livelihood. I am honored and proud to have received this recognition of the work that I have done during my time on the bench and earlier in my legal career,” Judge McCarthy said. “This rating will validate my message of having the critical judicial experience and independence necessary to the voters of Steuben County.”
