Jefferson County Democrats endorse Sovie for Family Court judge


Jefferson County’s Democratic Party has endorsed Sackets Harbor lawyer Susan A. Sovie as the Democratic candidate for county Family Court judge.

The decision was unanimous, following nominations by retired County Judge Lee Clary and Timothy Kelly during a party committee meeting Thursday at the Black River Valley Club, Watertown, according to a committee news release.

A graduate of Hartwick College, Oneonta, and Syracuse University College of Law, Ms. Sovie was a founding board member and former board chairwoman of the county’s now-defunct Big Brothers/Big Sisters program.

She is a member of the state’s Fifth Judicial District’s attorney grievance committee and is on the board of the state’s Office of Indigent Legal Services, among other community involvement.

The Watertown native also is the only attorney in Jefferson County ever to receive the Fourth Department’s Michael F. Dillon Law Guardian Award for outstanding representation of children.
