David To Appoint Binghamton City Court Judge

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Binghamton City Court judge has announced she intends to retire this spring, so Mayor Richard David has started to look for qualified candidates to fill the position.

David says he was notified earlier this month that Judge Mary Anne Lehmann’s retirement is to be effective on April 4.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, David said the person he appoints would serve as judge through the end of the year. An election for the position is to be held in November.

David said he’s already received two inquiries expressing interest in being considered for the appointment.

The mayor said he wants the selection process for a new judge to be public and thorough. He said he’ll accept resumes from qualified candidates. Resumes can be mailed to the mayor’s office at City Hall or may be emailed to mayor@cityofbinghamton.com.

Binghamton City Court judges are elected to 10-year terms. The current annual salary is $133,000.

City court deals with a range of matters including code enforcement, traffic cases, evictions and small claims.

The candidate chosen by the mayor to be judge would be expected to attend Judge School next January, should he or she be elected to a full term in November.
